Cups are probably dying off.  If you have a late field, you may have experienced an infection period.

Infection periods occurred in most areas last night and we are likely to have another today.

Please let me know if you still have cups. You can email me, Seanna Annis, at sannis@maine.edu or call me at the blueberry hotline 1.800.897.0757.

If you applied fungicide about seven days before the start of this infection period, your plants were protected during this infection period.

If you have not applied a fungicide and want to apply a fungicide with some kickback activity, you have approximately 72 hours from the start of the infection period to do so.
