A cold treatment for postharvest control of western flower thrips on strawberry runners



A cold treatment for postharvest control of western flower thrips on strawberry runners



Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture 45(12): 1649-1651



In 1998-99, outbreaks of Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergrande), western flower thrips (WFT), caused extensive damage to strawberry crops in the Yarra Valley, Victoria. These crops were within 30 km of Toolangi where over 80% of certified strawberry runners for Australia are produced. Commercial growers store runners for various periods of time at temperatures as low as -2 degrees C.
