The Strawberry PIP-CAP SCRI has the goal to improve the resilience of the US strawberry supply chain. Our team is developing new protocols and tools to propagate and condition strawberries, using controlled environment technology. We work across 11 institutions, with 19 PIs and Co-PIs, more than 15 students and post-docs and range of industry partners. You can find a more detailed project description also on the official USDA homepage.
