Strawberry is the name given to several plant species in the genus Fragaria, including Fragaria vesca (wild strawberry), Fragaria grandiflora, Fragaria magna, Fragaria chiloensis and Fragaria ananassa (or Fragaria x ananassa) which are grown for their edible erry is an herbaceous perennial in the family Rosaceae.

The plant has a short stem and trifoliate leaves which form a crown. MAJOR STRAWBERRY DISEASES Gray Mold or Botrytis Rot Gray mold is a serious disease in all strawberry production areas and is the primary disease of concern in most years.

The disease is a problem not only in the field, but also during storage, transit, and market of strawberries, due to onset of severe rot as the fruits begin to ripen. A number of fungi cause foliar diseases on strawberry.

There are subtle differences among these diseases, but they also have a few things in common. All of them overwinter in infected leaves and crop debris. All produce spores in spring and early summer, and the spores are spread primarily by splashing water.

Spores are produced in wet conditions. All require long periods of leaf wetness ( Print this fact sheet. by C.E. Swift * (12/14). Quick Facts Winter damage and poor cultural management predispose strawberry plants to diseases.

Red stele, black root rot, powdery mildew, botrytis fruit rot, leaf spot, and leaf scorch are the most important strawberry diseases in Colorado. To identify strawberry diseases so you can treat them, start by looking at the plant's specific symptoms.

For example, if your strawberry plant's leaves are stunted, wilted, or dull in color, you may be dealing with root rot. If the berries and blossoms have black or gray moldy areas, fruit rot or blossom blight may be to : K.

Disease from Scales and Thrips. Scales and thrips attack the leaves of strawberry leaves, sucking out plant juices. Not only do they damage trees, the insects facilitate the spread of diseases.

What are strawberry viruses. A large number of viruses infect strawberries, either singly or insymptoms are worse with multiple infections.

Virus infection can result in a wide range of symptoms, including mottling, leaf crinkling, yellow spotting, vein banding (lighter areas surrounding the veins), plant distortion and stunting. Diseases and Pests Compendium Series. APS PRESS Online Book Packages For Libraries: View Pricing.

12(3), March Identification of Leaf Diseases Leaf Spot (caused by the fungus Mycosphaerella fragariae). If your strawberry plants are flowering but there are no signs at all of fruit developing the problem can have one of two causes: Flowers not being pollinated by bees and other insects.

Flowers have been damaged by a late frost, this is called Strawberry Black eye (see below) STRAWBERRY BLACK EYE This is a condition rather than a pest or disease. Strawberry Plants: Leaf Symptoms. Most problems with strawberry leaves are caused by fungal infections. Scorch, leaf blight, leaf spot and powdery mildew are all common ailments that result from.

There are quite a few diseases that affect strawberry plants. The strawberry plant’s leaves, roots, and fruit are all susceptible to a variety of diseases, depending on the resistance of the strawberry plant cultivar being considered.

This is a summary of the most common strawberry plant diseases. Strawberry Diseases Diseases. Angular Leaf Spot: Anthracnose: Black Root Rot: Botrytis: Leaf Blight: Leaf Scorch. Removing foliage after harvest reduces inoculum in the field. Mow leaves of June-bearing plants inch above the crown after harvest.

Do not mow everbearing or day-neutral types. Leaf spot can still be a problem after renovation unless supplemented with chemical protection. Use drip irrigation if possible.

Some research has shown strawberries reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Strawberries are high in vitamins C, B6 and K, fiber, folic acid, potassium and amino acids. Strawberries for Strawberry Lovers is a good website about strawberries with great pictures of the different parts of the berry.

This disease affects strawberry plant foliage causing purple spots ⅛ to ¼ inches across on the upper side of the leaves. At first, the whole spot is purple but as the disease matures the center of the leaf spots on older leaves become tan or gray, then almost white. Lesions on younger leaves.

The Strawberry Production Guide for the Northeast, Midwest, and Eastern Canada is dedicated to Dr. Gene Galletta, strawberry breeder at the United States Department of Agriculture–Agricultural Research Service laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland.

Through his tireless efforts, Dr. Galletta released many strawberry varieties to the industry, in. The strawberry aphid can severely affect yield because it transmits a host of virus including the strawberry mild yellow edge virus, strawberry crinkle virus and the strawberry mottle virus [7, 15].

In general, aphids are small ( cm), globular, pear-shaped, soft-bodies insects found on the underside of leaves. Management The most effective method of controlling the disease is the use of resistant blackberry varieties; if plants are already infected but disease is not yet severe then remove and destroy any abnormal blossom clusters; old canes should be removed and destroyed immediately following harvest; fungicide application may limit damage; disease can also be controlled by only harvesting berries.

Blackberry Diseases. Disease, Pathogen, Symptoms Control Anthracnose (Elsinoe veneta) This disease can be severe on thorned blackberries grown in Tennessee. Leaf spots are roughly circular with a light gray center and a reddish-purple margin. On the berry, individual drupelets become purplish brown and sunken after infection.

Leaf Diseases of Strawberry. Fungal Leaf Spots. There are three fungal leaf spots of strawberry, Leaf Spot, Leaf Blight, and Leaf Scorch. All three fungal leaf spots are similar in life cycle.

They do not generally cause severe damage, but may weaken plants enough to cause overwintering problems. Yield is not usually affected. About Extension. NC State Extension is the largest outreach program at NC State University. Based in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, we reach millions of North Carolina citizens each year through local centers in the state's counties and with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

Leaves intervenal chlorosis beginning near margins and progressing towards midribs as well defined pattern; terminal leaves green or less chlorotic than older leaves, in contrast to iron deficiency. (cf. Plate No.iron deficiency) Strawberry Plant Iron deficiency Leaves severe chlorosis; green network of fine veins distinct in early.

Plants are tolerant of wind and some drought once established and grow in well-drained clay. The cultivar 'Compacta' is a smaller shrub, six to ten feet tall and wide; 'Elfin King' has a contorted, dwarf form, flowers and fruits year-round; 'Rubra' has deep pink flowers.

Propagation is by seed or layering. Pests and Diseases. Leaf spots, fruit rot, wilt and unusual plant growth or color can all be symptoms of a plant disease problem. Identify the insect, disease or nonliving factor that is causing problems in your garden with the UMN Online Diagnostic Tool What’s wrong with my plant.

or send a diseased plant sample to the UMN Plant Disease Clinic. Find more information about common plant disease problems below. The new strawberry variety Moxie is showing yield increases as much as 29 percent over previous UC varieties.

(Hector Amezcua/UC Davis) Since Knapp took over the strawberry breeding program inhe and his team have been working to develop varieties with genetic resistance to disease to reduce the need for fumigants.

If available, disease-resistant varieties are the best option for easy care; and for all types of plants, proper maintenance (such as watering, pruning, spraying, weeding, and cleanup) can help keep most insects and diseases at bay.

Plant leaves can sometimes change colour or produce unusual marks, blotches or even weird-looking structures on them. Here are some of the more common leaf problems. In Brief.

Georgia strawberry producers need to be wary of Neopestalotiopsis; a disease that has already devastated Florida production and could have wide-ranging impact on Georgia’s crop if farmers are not proactive. In case of emergency Call your poison control center: If the patient has collapsed or is not breathing: call Pesticide Safety Information.

The pathogens involved in this disease are commonly found in soils but usually don’t cause disease symptoms on healthy plants, but stressed plants are more susceptable.

Strawberry plants may be stressed in a number of ways, including drought, winter injury, root feeding insects, nematodes, poor nutrition, soil compaction, and improper. Fungal diseases of the leaf may occur as soon as the first leaves unfold in early spring and continue until dormancy in the late fall.

On highly susceptible varieties, these diseases can cause significant economic damage. The primary damage from leaf diseases is a loss of vigor through reduced leaf area.

If outbreaks of these leaf diseases become significant, the plants will become weakened. Other diseases that challenge strawberry cultivation include black root rot, leaf rot, fruit rot, blossom blight, powdery mildew, leaf scorch, and verticillium.

Storage & Packaging After picking, strawberries are gently packed in the field and fruit should be cooled as soon as possible to maximize shelf life.

Gray Strawberry Rot Brown leaf spot. The insidious disease in a short time destroys the whole plantation of strawberries. It is quite simple to define it: small brown spots appear on the surface of the sheet, which quickly form one large spot; gradually the leaves of the affected plant turn yellow and die.

Disease: Leaf blotch disease of strawberry is caused by the fungus Zythia fragaria. The disease primarily causes a leaf disease, with symptoms consisting of tan to gray leaf lesions; lesions usually contain tiny dark brown specks that are the fruiting bodies of the pathogen.

For coastal California, leaf blotch is an early spring disease that.This video explain types of diseases that strawberries can get, and how to maintain and control the disease. Wallace also gives ideas how to control how to c. To reduce the incidence of these diseases, use the annual hill method of planting as well as practice good sanitation techniques such as the removal of any diseased fruits or leaves.
