Strawberry nursery tray plant quality and establishment webinar
When: 4.00pm–5.30pm Wednesday, 28 February 2024
Join Fruit Growers Tasmania and Berries Australia for a webinar on strawberry nursery tray plant quality and establishment at 4pm on Wednesday 28 February.
The webinar will be led by Klaas Plas, a strawberry expert from the Netherlands with over 30 years of experience in all aspects of strawberry production.
Through his company Berrykonsult, Klaas works with growers across Europe, Canada and Australia. He specialises in current and future integrated pest management practices in strawberries, and has extensive experience in strawberry nursery plant quality.
During the webinar Klaas will speak on a variety of topics including:
- Strawberry nursery tray/plug plant best practice.
- How the different techniques for nursery tray plants are used to extend the season in Europe. Frozen (large plugs) for high volume short production. Ambient (medium plugs) for midterm season production and Tips (smaller plugs) for longer production.
- The benefits of the larger nursery plants with multiple crowns for early fruit production and larger yields.
- Establishing tray plants in the field (substrate and soil).
