The Effects of Biomin Calcium Applied Through Drip Irrigation on Strawberries

Biomin Calcium, an amino acid chelate produced by J.H. Biotech, Inc. was applied to strawberries (Fragaria × ananassa) cv. ‘Camarillo’ grown in the Santa Maria Valley through the drip irrigation weekly starting at bloom initiation.

The Initial rate was 3 gallons/acre at bloom followed by weekly 1 gallon/acre applications.  Strawberry fruit weight was significantly higher in the plants treated with Biomin Calcium.  The strawberry plants that received Biomin Calcium had significantly higher sugar levels in the fruit.

Strawberry plants treated with Biomin Calcium had significantly higher plant tissue levels of calcium, zinc and boron.
