  • 2015 Southeast Regional Organic Blueberry Pest Management Guide (B 1440-01)

    A guide for organically managing diseases, insects, weeds and wildlife in blueberries in the Southeast. This publication is not intended to provide all details on organic blueberry production, although it does include the production methods that reduce the impact of plant disease and pest issues.

    The information presented is intended for use only as a guide. Specific rates and application methods are on the pesticide label, and these are subject to change at any time. Always refer to and read the pesticide label before making any application! The pesticide label supersedes any information contained in this guide, and it is the law. Because environmental conditions and grower application methods vary widely, suggested use does not imply that performance of the pesticide will always conform to the safety and pest control standards indicated by experimental data.

  • Commercial Blueberry Inventory and Prospectus, Georgia, 2002 (RR 693)

    Both rabbiteye and highbush blueberries are produced
    in Georgia. The plants can produce a commercially viable
    crop for years. The long-term nature of the investment in
    the blueberry orchard calls for periodic updates on the
    situation of the blueberry industry. Information about the
    location of plants, varieties, plant age, and the use of cultural
    practices are important in decisions to allocate
    resources. This report provides insights otherwise unavailable
    to the industry yet of important practical
    consequences. An overview of the Georgia blueberry
    industry helps to shape the production and marketing
    strategies that extend beyond the state boundaries. The
    major portion of the annual crop is shipped to markets
    outside the region. Furthermore, the increasing value of
    blueberry plants implies that any damage to the commercial
    blueberry industry has financial implications for
    growers and shippers. Summaries included in this report
    help in accurate assessment of potential economic losses
    from damages to blueberry plants and the feasibility of
    programs protecting the value represented by orchards. Published on Mar 30, 2096.
