I have two big patches with supposedly the same type of strawberries. The one patch is 3 years old and only produced 14# last year and 3# this year.
This is the second year for the others and I got 77#.
They have both been managed the same way. They are both in tilled rows. Neither were fertilized this spring
The PH on the first patch is 7.3. Could this be the reason they are doing so badly? Here are the rest of the numbers if they mean anything.
Pounds per acre...
Water PH 6.8
Buffer PH 7.3
Organic matter 3.6
I am wondering if it is hopeless, and why. Thanks.
