Strawberry runners grow in water unlike the usual method of putting them in soil. When the runners get on the soil covered with special film, the growing roots cannot implant on the film, dry down and later get damaged and attacked by insects
The water plantation allows growing plants with strong roots immune to diseases. The plants that appear on strawberry runners are ready to be planted in open soil and bring good harvest during 4-5 years.
The experiment is supervised by ass.prof.Sergey Kornatsky, PhD.
The project was also awarded with Diploma of the RF Fundamental sciences Foundation and Kazakh National Agrarian University Rector’s Cup.
