5.15.18 Mummy Berry Infection period, May 15 to May 16
Unless you have a really late field, the mummy berry cups are probably not active in your area. If you have a late field, you may have experienced an infection period.
Infection periods occurred in most areas from Tuesday to Wednesday (today). Reports are cups are drying up in many areas but I think they are still active in most fields.
Please let me know if you still have cups. You can email me, Seanna Annis, at email@example.com 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.
