Fact sheet on strawberry production published

A fact sheet written by 3Keel summarising the pros and cons of moving from ground to tabletop strawberry production has been published by WRAP (access via their website: http://www.wrap.org.uk/strawberryproduction).

The work is the result of a collaboration of five growers supplying Asda-IPL and Co-op Food, who examined the environmental and business benefits of the production systems. Through field work and a series of meetings, the group identified potential benefits to crop yields, reductions in waste levels and labour costs.

This fact sheet summarises the key findings of the demonstration project and is intended to help growers weigh-up the pros and cons of changing production systems.
