Low tunnels reduce diseases on strawberries

The TunnelBerries research site at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul experienced a very wet summer which contributed to a high degree of infection by anthracnose and other diseases (see the image below). Graduate student Heidi Anderson observes that disease incidence appears to be lower in strawberries grown under low tunnels. Data analysis to be conducted will determine if there is a difference in disease incidence between UV-transmitting and UV-blocking tunnel films.
