FIELD PERFORMANCE OF ANDROGENIC STRAWBERRY PLANTS.
Assessments of vegetative, flowering and fruiting parameters revealed that there was variation among all the androgenic lines, with the exception of three, for one or a combination of characters. Two lines were variable for a combination of characters which could be of potential agronomic importance. One line gave a yield greater than that of Saladin, was early flowering and produced a second flush of flowers. The other line was erect, late flowering and exhibited everbearing tendencies. Androgenic plants would appear to have the potential to contribute positively to strawberry breeding programs.
