Product Description

Strawberry Deficiency Symptoms is designed to help strawberry growers improve their fertilization programs to produce the best fruit without crop loss due to nutrient deficiency and without nutrient excesses leading to possible nitrate-nitrogen or other ground water contamination. This manual provides a color photo guide to visible symptoms of nutrient deficiencies in strawberries. Use of the visual guide is a large part of the five-step program, outlined below, to identify, correct, and prevent such symptoms.

Five Step Strawberry Deficiency Program:

1. Identify symptoms using the descriptive key and the photos in this Color Atlas.

2. Chemically analyze symptomatic leaves and compare results with analyical values in Table 1, page 42.

3. Conduct small-scale field trials (described herein), and apply appropriate treatments, either according to local experience or following the corrective measures given in the Color Atlas.

4. After two weeks, take and analyze leaves from treated and untreated plants and compare results.

5. Use the systematic plant analysis program presented here both to prevent nutrient deficiencies and loss of yield before symptoms appear, and to prevent over-fertilization, possibly resulting in ground water pollution.

The nutritional needs of the strawberry can be met most effectively by asking the strawberry plant about its nutrient needs through plant analysis, supplemented by soil analysis, and then either fertilizing accordingly or changing such cultural practices as methods of irrigation, crop rotation, varieties, or fertilizer materials.
