Growers and pest control advisors look at strawberry plants daily and see problems often. Some problems like salt injury are frequent while others, like frost injury are only seen once in a few years. With over 60 pathological, physiological and nutritional problems it is important not to overlook injury from herbicides. In collaboration with UC strawberry workgroup members we recently launched a bi-lingual web site that displays injuries and disorders from chemical and other causes.
The site is a work in progress as we continue to add images of problems, translation into Spanish and update the content of existing pages with new information. We hope that with improved access to images and descriptions the site can be useful in field diagnostic for problems and patterns in which they occur. This will be a long term project and with enough time and contribution turn into a comprehensive but simple on-line reference guide.
