Strawberries in the field

SCRI Planning Grant

The National Strawberry Sustainability Initiative (NSSI) received a USDA Specialty Crop Research Initiative planning grant in partnership with land-grant universities in 13 states, USDA-ARS, and growers and strawberry associations in 7 states. The goal of this project is to developing a strategic plan based on industry input that addresses the critical needs for research, outreach and education, in order to expand strawberry production with sustainable technologies and practices.
