Ultra Gro for Strawberries


The strawberry is an herbaceous (non-woody), perennial plant with a crown borne on very short stems and has a dense root system. Strawberry inflorescences (flowers) that develop into fruit are borne on terminal buds of the primary and secondary branches (stems). Strawberry fruit is not a true fruit, but swollen summit of flower stalk (receptacle) on which the tiny seeds (achenes) develop externally. The development of the edible part of the fruit depends on a hormonal balance during seed development. Any interruption of that balance due to lack of suitable nutrition results in malformed fruit. Abnormal soil pH and salinity caused by chloride and sodium ions are very harmful to the crop. Strawberries need high levels of nitrogen, potassium, and a moderate supply of phosphorus. For maximum production, fruit size and sugars, fertilizers should be applied throughout the growing season.
