On commercial scale, rows are prepared for the cultivation of strawberries.

Strawberry is cultivated in different ways. It can be also planted in pots. But on a commercial scale, raised rows are made for its cultivation. This allows for easier weed control, easier harvest, less fruit rot, and fewer foliage diseases than other methods. The raised bed provides higher spring soil temperatures and better drainage, allowing faster establishment and earlier cropping. The row to row distance should be 30-35 cm and plant to plant distance should be the same. The plants should be planted alternatively. They can also be cultivated in individual rows. In nurseries growers should keep maximum distance. So that the plants could get more space for fruit growth and development. Winter cultivation of strawberry depends on climatic conditions. Plants should be transfer from nursery during October-November and they should be planted in prepared rows during November-December. Healthy and disease free runners must be selected for cultivation. Extra leaves and roots should be cut off before planting.
