Efficient Strawberry Production

Comparing the business case for table top and ground production systems

A collaboration of five growers supplying Asda-IPL and Co-op Food have examined the environmental and business benefits of moving from ground to table-top production systems. Through field work and a series of meetings, the group identified potential benefits to crop yields, reductions in waste levels and labour costs.

This fact sheet summarises the key findings of the demonstration project and is intended to help growers weigh-up the pros and cons of changing production systems.
