Summary

The irrigation method did not affect either the shelf-life or the quality of fruit. In organic strawberry production grey mould is a major problem. Strawberry varieties differ from each other in disease susceptibility and the quality and shelf-life of the fruit is affected more by their properties and weather conditions than by the irrigation method.
