Strawberry Culture: Eastern United States

Description: Revised edition. "This bulletin discusses commercial methods [for strawberry growing] in the eastern United States, the territory including approximately one tier of States west of the Mississippi -- that part of the country where farm crops are usually grown without irrigation -- but not including the South Atlantic and Gulf coast region. Revised edition. The successful cultural methods followed in the different strawberry districts are described. These commercial methods are not all applicable to the growing of strawberries in the home garden, but as the underlying principles are the same, the practices may be modified without difficulty. The bulletin gives complete directions given for planting, fertilizing, cultivating, harvesting, and marketing." -- p. ii
