The article reports that due to two viruses found in spring of 2013, Kentucky strawberry producers are advised to check with their supplier on the origin of their plugs. Producers are warned of reduced or eliminated yield to be brought by these viruses. They are advised to plan for at least a 25 percent reduction in yields if the viruses are found. Poor plant growth in spots or in entire fields, older leaves turning bright red, and yellowing along plant edges are some of the symptoms.
