Exploiting bioresources for environmental friendly strawberry production with enhanced yield, quality and shelf life (MiljøVennlig)

Test the potential of different substrate mixtures made up of composted peat moss, coconut coir, wood fiber, biochar and beneficial microbes on crop growth, disease severity (powdery mildew and gray mold) and post-harvest shelf life of strawberry.

About/Aims
Objectives

Alternative biowastes for partial or complete replacement of peat moss substrate

Selection and integration of potential non-chemical options (optical radition, substrate type, and biochar type, Acadian seaweed and beneficial microbes) for better management of powdery mildew and gray mold

Aloe vera based extracts and optical environment for minimize post-harvest losses
