Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira and Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) will start extensive sampling of strawberries in the summer of 2017.
The campaign is related to the joint research project of Evira and Luke which aims at developing a method for the verification of the origin of Finnish strawberries. "The study to be started is based on the different forms of isotopes of the elements. Part of the isotopes are found in different concentrations in different geographical regions, and they are absorbed into plants in ratios determined by their environment. Thus it is possible to identify the origin of plant products on the basis of their isotope ratios. The data are supplemented by determining the minerals contained in the plants", explains Professor Janne Nieminen from Evira. Syst Rev. 2015; 4(1): 9.

Abstract To elucidate the mechanisms contributing to fruit responses to senescence and stressful environmental stimuli under low temperature (LT) and controlled atmosphere (CA) storage, a label-free quantitative proteomic investigation was conducted in strawberry (Fragaria ananassa, Duch. cv.
‘Akihime’). Postharvest volatile compounds were characterized following storage under different conditions.

RUTGERS COOPERATIVE EXTENSION 01/05/14 Strawberry Fruit Rots. Anthracnose Fruit Rot of Strawberry Fruit rots in strawberry can cause significant losses if not recognized early and controlled.
The use of good cultural practices such as: keeping fields weed-free and promoting good drainage; long crop rotations, and preventative fungicide applications are critical. Pathogens such as anthracnose, gray mold (Botrytis), and leather rot can become systemic problems in strawberry plantings once established. All three fungal diseases are soil-borne and once in fields can be difficult to manage over the lifetime of the planting. The use of mulch (matted rows) to prevent/reduce soil splashing and keeping fruit from coming into direct contact with the soil surface can be beneficial in organic production systems where conventional fungicides cannot be used.

EUROSURVEILLANCE 27/02/14 Au sommaire: Large multistate outbreak of norovirus gastroenteritis associated with frozen strawberries, Germany, 2012. From 20 September through 5 October 2012, the largest recorded food-borne outbreak in Germany occurred.
Norovirus was identified as the causative agent. We conducted four analytical epidemiological studies, two case–control studies and two surveys (in total 150 cases) in secondary schools in three different federal states. Overall, 390 institutions in five federal states reported nearly 11,000 cases of gastroenteritis.

Strawberry licensee fights illegal plant duplication in Egypt Send to a friend February 21st, 2013 With the help of European Union customs officials, U.S. company Ekland Marketing detained dozens of loads of illegally produced Egyptian strawberries over the 2012-13 season in an effort to protect official patent agreements.
As a strawberry licensee to almost 70 countries, Ekland Marketing has encountered extra trouble in Egypt due to easy and unauthorized duplication of the country’s most common variety, Festival strawberries. Outside of the U.S. and Canada, Ekland Marketing is the main licensee for the University of Florida strawberry program. “We really want to work with them. “Getting them to understand how patents work and how the funds go back in to further research, which then benefits their industry again, is something we have tried to convey to them for many years.”

Michael J. Newell, faculty research assistant and program manager for horticultural crops at the Wye Research and Education Center, said agricultural researchers noted a problem with strawberry plants in the states last fall. Sometime last November, they started getting reports that strawberry plants were not growing well and they began to investigate, not suspecting a virus at the time. “Most of the plants we get for plastic culture — planted beneath black plastic in the fall to overwinter — come from plant nurseries in Canada and Nova Scotia,” Newell explained.

The event featured several educational presentations followed by field tours showcasing new varieties, cold protection, and pest and disease control trials. Dr. Zhengfei Guan, UF/IFAS, is conducting a comprehensive survey of Florida’s strawberry growers to determine the challenges the industry is facing. Guan presented results of his study during the Berry Expo. He opened by sharing general trends in acreage and production in the U.S. and in Florida. However, revenue for Florida shows a trend of decreasing returns beginning around 2007. In recent years, Mexican strawberry acreage has shown a dramatic increase, with 17,038 acres planted in 2011 rising to 25,100 acres this season.
Guan said these market challenges are having a negative impression on grower attitudes about the future. Threat Assessment Guan said top concerns match many in the fresh produce sector.

UK: Strawberry harvester shows over 20% more productivity Tech2reality is a UK based design and innovation company with pioneering experience of applying electric drive and advanced controls to almost anything on wheels. Four years ago they entered the horticultural business, tackling the challenge of part-mechanising the labour intensive process of strawberry harvesting, but adding a particular focus on providing the pickers with a comfortable, quiet and clean working environment, whilst also maximising the teams’ productivity.
They devised a wide track machine for good stability, yet with the remarkable capability to swing all of the wheels into ‘crab mode’ for handling any narrow headlands or gateways. Their Tektu T100 harvester is all-electric powered, offering 4WD, 4WS, automatic conveyors and even automatic steering with non-contact sensors.
