About the Products used in the Crop Nutrition Program

Conclusion

The fresh, juicy, sweet and delicious strawberries are the great love of many people. They are not only delicious but are also a fruit for healthy living.

China’s strawberry planting area has exceeded 2 million Mu (133,333 hectares), with a total output of more than 2 million tonnes, (2,000,000,000 kg) and accounts for one-third of the world’s total output. The national strawberry planting area is therefore a crucial part of this fruit’s market as the frozen strawberry production and export also rank first in the world for China.

The RLF crop nutrition program as trialled, therefore adds much value to these broader market outcomes as well as the financial outcomes for the growers.
