The climate and soil conditions in the area of the town of Gotse Delchev generally are suitable for the growth of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. The following factors are relatively unfavourable: a relatively low probability for the establishment of extremely low winter temperatures in the absence of a snow cover, high rainfall amounts during the ripening of the strawberries, probability for the establishment of a low relative humidity combined with low soil moisture during flowering and ripening, availability of high relative humidity periods, relatively high risk of hails, a potential risk of soil acidification and low content of nutrient macro elements and organic matter in the soil. To ensure the normal growth of the plants, relevant schemes and fertilization rates, shown in this study, are applied.
