TOLERO™ on Strawberries
16% Increase in fruit yield
Strawberries perform best in sandy, well-drained soils and are grown in raised beds to avoid root rot. Strawberry plants have shallow root systems and require consistent moisture throughout the growing season.Drip irrigation is generally used in commercial strawberry production because it keeps moisture away from the fruit and prevents disease. TOLERO,™ an irrigation injection surfactant, maintains water in the plant root zone, which increases yields while decreasing the use of water and the energy needed to operate irrigation pumps.
