Parikka, Päivi (2003) The effect of irrigation method on the quality and shelf-life of strawberry fruit in organic production. In: Plant protection in sustainable strawberry production, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists, p. 22.
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.
