Planasa’s New variety REDSAYRA® (Plared 15121) is an extra-early short-day (SD) strawberry selection. It is very rustic (with a low sensibility to fungi diseases like powdery mildew) and it has an excellent crop establishment with a highly linear production during its entire campaign. The fruit has a very sweet flavor, conical shape, and large size. Its skin is firm and resistant, ensuring a long shelf life.
These traits are confirmed by the Andalusian Institute for Research and Training in Agriculture, Fishery, Food and Ecological Production (IFAPA), where different types of cultivation systems were tested: in chemically disinfected soil, without soil and in non-disinfected soil.
- Disinfected soil: Until April 18th (unfinished campaign) REDSAYRA® has accumulated over 70.000 kg/ha, with almost 1 kg per plant. We are still waiting for a good ending of its campaign. Its earliness stands out having produced 131g/pl by the end of January and 356 g/pl by the end of February. It also has kept a very good average brix with 8,2º and only an 8% of 2º category fruit. #PlanasaYield #PlanasaEarliness.
- Not disinfected soil: REDSAYRA® is one of the most productive varieties with almost 50.000 kg/ha by April 18th. It came to be the most productive one by the end of February with 290 g/pl. Together with Red Samantha®, it’s the most rustic, with 0% mortality rate.
We would like to thank IFAPA for giving us the possibility to test the performance of our varieties in an objective manner with such a professional and technical team.
We are proud of seeing our varieties show their main traits in external field trials as well.
