Planting of Strawberries - Timing

I wish to plant a couple of 20' rows of June-bearing strawberries (i.e., Cavendish). If I plant this fall (2018) would I be able to harvest any fruit the following June (2019)? If I will not get fruit until June 2020 when planting this fall, then I might as well wait until Spring 2019 to start the rows. Advice? Tks

Native grasses that are particularly good or better at removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

I'm working with a student who is wondering if there's been any research to date on the effectiveness of different native grass species removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, perhaps at different rates? The species we're interested in using for an experiment are panicum virgatum, andropogon virginicus, carex pensylvanica, chasmanthium latifolium, schizachyrium scoparium, and sorghastrum nutans.
