Strawberries are grown on about 500 acres in Indiana, ranking the state 11th in the U.S. Most are grown in relatively small, upick operations. Acreage has declined over the past few years. Strawberry production in Indiana is primarily of June bearing varieties grown in the matted row system. Though p​lasticulture production has become common in other regions, Indiana's climate is not conducive to plasticulture production except in the southern counties where mild fall weather allows for development of branch crowns.

The following resources should be of use to Indiana strawberry growers.
