Small Fruits and Berries
The consumption of small fruits and berries is widely appreciated in the form of fresh fruit, jams or cordials. The most important crop is strawberries, followed by red currant and black currant, raspberry, blueberry, cranberry and gooseberry.
The mineral nutrition of strawberries is well-documented while far less documentation exists for small fruits. As a general rule, small fruits tend to prefer acidic soils. They are chloride-sensitive crops and therefore, fertilizers containing chloride should be avoided.
The production of small fruits and berries is on the rise due to increasing cropping area, new varieties and a better use of inputs – especially fertilizers.
