Mummy berry infection period May 16th to May 17th, 2018

Print Friendly

Midcoast region, Knox, Waldo and York counties

All reports are the cups are dried up in this area. 

Hancock County

North Ellworth 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. 

Downeast

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 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.
