Experiments were conducted to determine if cultivars of strawberry grown in Queensland, Australia have excessive leaf production for adequate cropping. The number of leaves/plant over the season followed a linear pattern and was directly related to the number of growing degree-days, using a base temperature of 7 oC. On average, a new leaf was produced every six to seven days, with an average of 27 leaves/plant at the end of the season. Potential yield as indicated by the dry weight of the flowers and immature fruit increased in a linear response up to 40 to 45 leaves/plant. There was no relationship between yield and the number of leaves/plant because rain before harvest damaged the fruit in some years. These results suggest that the development of new cultivars with more leaves/plant might increase the cropping of strawberries growing in the subtropics. View this paper.
