Excerpt from Strawberry Growing, Vol. 21: Department of Agriculture of British Columbia
For profitable growing on a large scale, select a piece Of well-drained clay loam. This should receive a heavy coating of manure in the spring and then' be either summer-fallowed or planted with potatoes, vegetables, or some other early crop which can be removed in time to permit of a' proper prepara tion Of the land in autumn before it becomes too wet with fall rains. A sub soiler should follow the common plough, one that will stir up the sub-soil to the depth of 5 to 10 inches without bringing any Of it to the top. Sub soiling is not absolutely necessary, but land thus loosened up will retain moisture longer in time of drought and dry Off much more rapidly after heavy rains. The last ploughing in the fall should be thoroughly done and suitable furrows provided, so that all surface water may run Off quickly. Early in the spring, as soon as the weather and the condition of the soil will permit, cultivate deeply, both lengthwise and crosswise, with a two-horse cultivator; harrow down smooth and the land will be ready for planting. Avoid plowing a heavy soil in the spring for immediate planting.
