a result of the current poor translation of kaolin effects between experiments, paramount to mechanistic data must be end-product criteria like plant growth, yield, or crop quality. Reports also should include kaolin coverage and effects on light

Breeding and selection for plant disease resistance remains one of the most economically and environmentally sound approaches to improving crop quality and yield ( Lynch et al., 2003 ). As part of a long-term breeding program in blueberries, we
