Many fruit trees require cross-pollination to reach their full yield potential. In highbush blueberries ( Vaccinium corymbosum L. and its hybrids), optimal pollination by genotype combination results in higher fruit set, larger berries, and earlier

. Phytophthora is also a serious problem on ripening fruits on the trunk, and it is controlled by frequent applications of dithiocarbamate fungicides, which were evaluated and cleared for use with papayas in the 1970s. In the early 1980s, the Environmental
