The effects of Maleic Hydrazide (MH) in controlling strawberry
plant populations were studied. Foliar applications of MH at 1000
ppm resulted in reduced runner length. The effect of MH sprays appeared
to be directly related to the stage of rooting at the time of
spray applications. Rooted plants were affected less than non-rooted
plants. By the end of the growing season (Oct. 31) plant populations
were significantly less than the control (matted row) and equaled
that of a hand thinned treatment. Sprayed and hand-pruned plots were
significantly lower in yield and fruit number. Berry size was the
same for all treatments.
