"To produce a good strawberry, 30% is based on management, and 70% is based on the quality of seedlings," says Ms. Zong Jing, strawberry expert of the Bejing Innovation Team.
Starting from mid-March, the main body of strawberry seedling production and operation in Beijing ushered in a new round of strawberry seedling cultivation period. Compared with the situation of perennial strawberry seedling cultivation, in the eyes of Ms. Zong Jing, strawberry seedling breeding will continue to move towards green and high-quality development in 2021. "Strawberry seedlings are more prominent with high-quality characteristics, which is reflected in the selection of varieties that focus on excellence, the model of seedlings focus on high efficiency, and the sales of seedlings focus on cycle."
On April 16, in the Jinliuhuan Agricultural Park in Changping District, Beijing, Ms. Zhu Ning, the person in charge of the park, pointed to the three strawberry seedlings placed in the plugs in the nursery greenhouse and told reporters: " These three rows of strawberry seedlings have more than 120 varieties, of which there are more than 20 Japanese and Korean varieties, more than 20 European and American varieties, and more than 80 domestic varieties. The varieties are still being collected and can be collected and planted at any time. "
Jinliuhuan Agricultural Park undertakes the function of selecting strawberry varieties. Ms. Zhu introduced that in previous years, the management of seedlings introduced from different regions of the country, such as seedling age, flower bud differentiation period, and medication, have been different, resulting in inconsistent biological characteristics of various strawberry varieties. This year, strawberry seedlings are bred in the same nursery greenhouse. With a better understanding of the characteristics of different varieties under the same seedling environment and the same cultivation management situation, good varieties can be selected.
"At present, strawberry planting in Beijing is developing in the direction of high-quality and industrialization, highlighting leisure functions. This requires the park to be consumer-oriented, and the varieties of strawberries grown are also showing a diversified trend." Ms. Zong said.
