Strawberry plants produce strawberries that produce profits for farmers all across the country. Strawberries are big business. So, anything that can increase the yields or ease of harvesting huge crops of juicy berries is often adopted. In the state of Wisconsin, commercial growers are presently allowed to use the herbicide Spartan 4F to control weeds.
The general public has been asked to comment on the possible expansion of the use of this pesticide in the treatment of strawberry crops.
