A STUDY TO MEASURE REGULATE & CONTROL STRAWBERRY RUNNER VIGOR

C. Salmond, P. McGruddy
This study was undertaken in March to May of 1992 during Queenslands strawberry transplant season. The catalyst was the unexplained runner failure experiences of 40% to 80%. Three areas were examined to address this problem, firstly measurement of a runners stress tolerance levels, secondly regulation of a runners physiological time-clock, thirdly control of a runners maturity. Such benefits could provide increased grower confidence in runner Certification Schemes and an estimated 15% to 20% yearly productivity increase.
