STRAWBERRY VARIETIES FOR MECHANICAL HARVESTING
The main aim in strawberry research in the GDR is the harvest mechanization of more than 50 % of the crop by developing special varieties and special harvesters. The first results are the varieties with simultaneously ripening berries "Fratina" and "Fracunda" and the strawberry harvester "E 840".
