Strawberries

Gardeners must control diseases, insects, weeds and birds. The plants must be planted correctly in a well-prepared site.
Harvesting normally begins in mid-March and lasts six to eight weeks.
Some popular varieties are Strawberry Festival, Radiance, Camarosa, Camino Real and Chandler. A major source of crop failure is crown rot.

Louisiana Tech University President Dan Reneau summed up the school’s entry into Conference USA in the perfect way.
