Among the chemical weed killers, a broad leaf weed killer should take care of most of your common weeds. On the organic side, you can look for pre-emergent type weed killers. As strawberries propagate by runners, the weed killer would only affect the weed seeds.

The best way to get more berries is to have happy plants. Mulching, fertilizing and good watering practices will all help. They like a little extra bone meal to help with blooming and fruit production as well.
