Description: Strawberry production under controlled environment (greenhouse, high tunnels) is a fast growing sector in North America. Production systems range from Dutch-style Venlo greenhouses (for year-round production) to single layer polyethylene tunnels with ‘table top’ production systems (for extended seasonal production). This presentation will review key greenhouse technologies that enable off-season production of strawberries, give you a better understanding of inputs and outputs including systems used for soilless strawberry production. You will also be familiarized with types of strawberry cultivars to get a better understanding of planting materials.
