My strawberries planted this spring have leaves turning light green to yellowish.
All plants are in raised beds. Have plenty of old leaves, some manure, etc.

Yellow leaves can be due to a few different issues.
Nematodes cause the leaves of the strawberry plant to yellow. Other symptoms include stunted growth, wilting, and fewer berries.
Verticillium growth first exhibits itself in the older leaves of the plant, turning yellow and brown between the veins of the strawberry plant leaves. Verticillium wilt takes root best at the onset of hotter, drier temperatures, when the strawberry plant may become more stressed due to inconsistent watering.
