Strawberries In Succession

Is there any reason, in strawberry culture, when the vines are removed

at the end of the fourth year, why the ground may not be thoroughly

plowed and again planted to strawberries?

It is theoretically possible to grow strawberries continuously on the

same land by proper fertilization and irrigation. Practically, the

objection is that certain diseases and injurious insects may multiply in

the land, and this is the chief reason why new plantations are put on

new land and the old land used for a time for beans or some root crop,

so that the soil may be cleaned and refreshed by rotation and by the

possibility of deeper tillage.
