Do strawberry plants need larger canopies, more flowers, or higher rates of photosynthesis for higher yield?

This article is about rates of photosynthesis in strawberry plants. Productivity in strawberry is dependent on the production of new crowns, leaves and inflorescences, with fruit growth dependent on photosynthesis occurring in the leaves. A review of several reports showed that the relationship between yield, growth and photosynthesis is not always clear. Cultivars achieve high yields in different ways, depending on the population, growing system and environment.
