Cups are probably dried up in most areas, except in later fields.  If you have a late field, your field may have experienced an infection period overnight. Please see table below.

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.
