HENSCHEL, Juliane M et al. Production and quality of strawberry cultivated under different colors of low tunnel cover. Hortic. Bras. [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.3, pp.364-370. ISSN 0102-0536.

Strawberry is a crop of great economic and social importance. Its fruits are appreciated both for their flavor and nutraceutical potential. Some studies confirm that light quality influences plant physiology. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate if changes in light spectrum, provided by low tunnels, can improve vegetative traits, as well as, production and fruit quality of strawberry. The authors used six tunnel covers (red, yellow, blue, green, transparent and opaque and one control, without cover), and two cultivars: a short photoperiod cultivar (Camarosa) and a neutral photoperiod cultivar (Albion). Experiment was evaluated in two seasons: production and plant development first; and then, post-harvest quality. Overall, Camarosa showed higher vegetative growth, lower production, and better fruit quality than Albion. Due to the complexity of physiological and biochemical responses, each trait evaluated showed a specific response to light changes. The red, blue, yellow and green covers did not show any significant improvement comparing with transparent and opaque covers. Thus, the authors suggest the use of the latter ones which have already been used commercially.
