Using Resistant Cultivars to Manage Strawberry Diseases

From the Midwest Small Fruit Pest Management Handbook

In any IPM program, the use of resistant cultivars is an important consideration.  Many commercial cultivars have resistance and/ore tolerance to leaf spot, leaf scorch, red stele, and powdery mildew.  The more resistance within a program, the better.  Table 21 (page 27) lists ratings for disease resistance in several of the more commonly grown strawberry cultivars.
