anthracnose fruit rot

Anthracnose fruit rot is a problem during warm, wet springs.

Anthracnose is the primary plant health threat to North Carolina strawberries. Two types of anthracnose may affect strawberry plantings in North Carolina. Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, anthracnose crown rot or known regionally as “the glo,” is a serious crown rot in North Carolina and the Southeastern United States. Anthracnose crown rot causes sudden wilt and death of apparently healthy plants. Colletotrichum acutatum, anthracnose fruit rot, can be, in some spring seasons (bloom and fruiting), a very serious disease problem, particularly in warm, wet weather. The source of infection for both types of anthracnose is typically related to the nursery plant. The best way to control anthracnose fruit rot is to prevent the introduction of the pathogen into the field by using pathogen-free transplants.

Runnering in the strawberry nursery

Runnering in the strawberry nursery.

The success of a strawberry plasticulture planting, in large part, depends on the health and vigor of the planting stock. Plants should be true to variety and free of insects, diseases, nematodes and viruses.

The Web site www.ncstrawberry.org (maintained by the N.C. Strawberry Association) keeps a current listing of U.S. and Canadian plant sources of these commonly grown varieties: Chandler, Camarosa and Sweet Charlie.
