HOW MANY YEARS CAN STRAWBERRIES BE GROWN IN THE SAME PLACE?

Three to four years on average. Longer than that doesn’t make sense. It all depends on several factors:Soil conditions – on lighter but fertile, humus and permeable soils the strawberries will keep well longer than on cold, heavy and sodden ones.Variety – some varieties are more resistant to soil nematodes and root system diseases (e.g. the old, good Senga Sengana), and others less resistant. Those less resistant usually after 3 years (and sometimes even after 2 years) are only suitable “for ploughing”. More resistant varieties may bear fruit in one place for 4 years, and sometimes even 5 years.The degree of weed infestation – on the plots prepared not carefully, i.e. strongly overgrown with couch grass and other troublesome weeds it is not worth to bother. It is better e.g. after 2 yearsto eliminate such cultivation and plant new strawberries in another, better prepared place
