Consumption of strawberries has been asserted to have many health promoting bioactive compounds including antioxidants.  Growing fruits and vegetables hydroponically represent a possible opportunity towards sustainable crop production; it would be beneficial to examine the feasibility and the potential ability to replace soil systems for growing strawberries.  Unlike leafy greens, the root structures, stalk, and fruit are more complex and require more physical support. In this study, hydroponic… Expand
