Topical Collection Information
Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.) are grown around the globe across many different environments and growing systems. Productivity and economic returns vary significantly from country to country and region to region. Yields are highly variable, depending on the cultivar, plant agronomy, and the weather. The cost of harvesting is high compared with that of many other horticultural crops, and profitability can be severely reduced by poor fruit quality and low marketable yields. Research is required to maintain or even increase profitability using new growing systems. These new growing systems might help the commercial industries mitigate some of the impacts of climate change in the future.
