Strawberry Registration & Certification Program


The Strawberry Program is a voluntary multi-step clean stock system adopted in 1949. At the top step, Foudation Stock is 100% tested for diseases of concern, and stock moves down (Registered) and out (Certified) of the system through subsequent growing seasons. Nursery stock at all levels of the program is inspected and tested for viral, fungal, and bacterial pathogens, nematodes, and varietal purity.
