Economy and business: – The more similar the imported berries become to the Norwegian strawberries, the more threatened they become, says Myklebust The online newspaper.

He explains that a lot has happened to Norwegian strawberry production in recent years. It has become common to import “production-ready” strawberry plants, and more and more people are growing berries on so-called “table tops” in tunnels.

– The day Norwegian and imported berries taste the same, then we have lost. Then it will be very difficult to achieve profitable strawberry production in Norway, he says to Nettavisen.

Myklebust grows his strawberries outdoors and believes that growing them in tunnels can affect the taste.
