Increasing brix levels in Everbearer strawberries which were under pressure from overheating in the summer of 2013.


The trials saw two applications applied to everbearer strawberry at 0.5litres per ha in 400 litres of water, four days apart. The trials area was 1 Ha of strawberries with 0.5ha treated with Brix Builder.


After seven days, Brix builder had managed to lift the strawberry Brix levels by an average of 3 degrees. This trial was then extended to 9 other areas which consistently repeated the same response and lead to the implementation of this application rate across the UK strawberry sector.
