Effects of cultural systems and harvesting techniques on the production of strawberries for processing



Effects of cultural systems and harvesting techniques on the production of strawberries for processing



Canadian Journal of Plant Science 67(3): 853-862



Field and decapping performance were compared for two strawberry [Fragaria .times. ananassa] clones, the cultivar Midway and the selection Vineland (V) 6747R-6, grown in solid beds or in matted rows and harvested either once-over by hand or by machine or by muiltiple harvests involving both hand and machine. Yields, which were related to crown numbers, were higher and fruit sizes were lower from the solid beds compared to the matted rows. Within each cultural system, yields were higher from the once-over hand and multiple harvests than from once-over machine harvests. A similar proportion of decapped fruit for a frozen product was obtained by mechanical decapping from the two systems. A greater proportion was obtained from multiple harvests of the matted rows than by other harvest treatments in that system or by any of the treatments in the solid bed system. From all systems and treatments, Midway gave higher yields and more decapped fruit than V6747R-6.
