Seed Propagated Strawberries for Organic Use in the US

Just catching up on my reading, and ran across this little number concerning the production of seed propagated strawberries.  To some extent, this is to provide an "environmentally friendly alternative to the vegetatively propagated varieties currently relied upon by the strawberry industry".  One, seed propagation would mean less dictation of planting date by nursery harvest schedules and purchaser climatic region and two be able to eliminate the chemical inputs necessary in bare root production systems and avoid transmission of diseases by living plants.

I need some time to get my head around this.
