Technical Abstract: Modern commercial organic strawberry production is a technical undertaking that encompasses many factors and poses many challenges. Growers must be aware of the compatibility of specific strawberry varieties with local climate, soil, plant pathogens, insect pests, and harvest schedules. Growers must also constantly adhere to production requirements for maintaining certification and high fruit quality. This manual can be used by current and prospective producers of certified organic strawberries to identify and implement research-based methods for the production of this commodity under current regulations in California.
