Few herbicides are registered for use in Junebearing matted-row strawberry culture. This study was conducted to develop alternative methods of weed management that are both economically and environmentally sustainable. The experiment evaluated the effects of two alternative and two conventional weed management systems on soil quality in Junebearing matted-row strawberry production. A soil quality index, based on chemical, physical, and biological properties of soil, was developed to help growers improve crop profitability and soil conservation.
