An effective method for hot water treatment and propagation of strawberry runners



An effective method for hot water treatment and propagation of strawberry runners



Irish Journal of Agricultural Research 18(3): 301-304



An experiment is described in which strawberry runner initials were hot-water treated [for pest control] at 45.degree. and 50.degree. C for 10 and 15 min. Plants did not tolerate the treatments at 50.degree. C and there was a significant reduction in plant survival when the treatment at 45.degree. C was continued for 15 min. Runner initials will tolerate 45.degree. C for 10 min provided they are pre-heated in warm water, immersed in cold water after treatment and planted in a frame. Treatment should be done not later than Sept. and the fact that some runners may have commenced root development apparently does not adversely affect their tolerance to this treatment.
