Mummy Berry 2018 Post #10

Friday, May 25, 2018

Based on scouting in the Annapolis Valley on Friday the majority of blueberry plants have begun to bloom, and apothecia cups have dried up and are no longer producing spores. As such, this will be the last mummy berry post of the 2018 season. 

This advisory, as with all previous recommendations are based on conditions observed in the Annapolis Valley. To ensure that you are no longer at risk of monilinia infection please continue to monitor fields, as there is considerable amount of variability across the province due to weather, varieties, plant development, etc...

Flower development from May 25,2018
Until next year, for more information on highbush blueberries, mummy berry, and sprays please refer to Highbush Blueberry Insect & Disease Management Schedule 2017 and  Management of Mummy Berry Disease in Highbush Blueberry.
