Strawberry Industry Info
Strawberries are mainly grown in raised beds enclosed with plastic, however growing strawberries hydroponically is increasing in popularity in New Zealand.
New variety development is a major focus and 55 cultivars have been introduced since 1980. Five new varieties were released from quarantine in April 2019.
