 In Did you know…?

Grey mould, or rot, in fruit is one of the most serious diseases that can affect strawberries, and berry crops in general. Caused by the Botrytis cinerea fungus, it can easily spread through your crops and inflict significant losses.
The main types of damage caused by fruit rot include:

• Appearance of soft rot in the form of grey deformations on the affected areas.
• The curling and drying of young leaves (brown damage).
• Symptoms of infection cover the upper surface of the fruit.
• Finally, the drying of the fruit, even emptying the strawberries.

Tips to prevent Botrytis:

• Place your plants in sunny and well-ventilated places.
• Facilitate ventilation through proper pruning.
• Remove infected material
• Protect crops from adverse weather conditions. Rains and mild temperatures favour its appearance.
