Preliminary Keeping Quality Forecast for 2014: Through the end of May, Bangor has picked up 7 points out of a total of 13, and Caribou has achieved 8 points out of 13.  That gives a forecast, with one month to go, of “GOOD” for both locations with 3 more points possible by the end of June for each location.

  • Bangor & Caribou: “Good” = Can ‘probably’ reduce your fungicide applications (definitely reduce if you used a Late Water flood)

Additional Diseases (via Univ. of Wisconsin) which includes: Cottonball, Black Rot, Early Rot, End Rot, Viscid Rot, Berry Speckle and Upright Dieback

For plant disease diagnostic assistance, visit the home page of our very own UMaine Extension Plant Disease Diagnostic Lab, where you’ll find a form and instructions on submitting samples to the lab.
