This fact sheet identifies rotation crops that are weak hosts of F.o. fragariae, and could lead to decreases in the pathogen population, and crops which are reservoir hosts, whose cultivation could lead to increases of the pathogen population. Results are discussed in the context of the F.o. fragariae life cycle.
