Mummy berry infection for Tues. May 15th to Wed. May 16th, 2018

Print Friendly

Midcoast region

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. 

Downeast

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 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 7 days before the start of this infection period, your plants were protected during this infection period. 

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