Theoretical and computational results are presented clarifying the role of long-ranged strain interactions in determining the charge and orbital ordering in colossal magnetoresistance manganites. The strain energy contribution is found to be of order 20–30 meV/Mn and in particular stabilizes the anomalous “zigzag chain” order observed in many half-doped manganites.
