Mummy berry infection period, May 16 to May 17, 2018
Midcoast Region: Knox, Waldo and York Counties
All reports are the cups are dried up in this area.
North Ellsworth and Aurora did not have any cups. There may still be cups in the Franklin area. If you have a late field, you may have experienced an infection period.
Cups are drying up in many mummy berry plots but active cups are still in some areas of the large barrens and are reported in Whiting/East Machias. Infection periods may have occurred in some areas overnight. Hopefully the rain this weekend will be the last infection periods for most people.
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.
