protection against Botrytis was Serenade, which was consistent across all tests. Mummyberry was present but strikes were few and far between to get meaningful data. Also berry yields were too variable on a plant-by-plant basis to show significant

seasonal berry weight was calculated using a weighted average according to the berry yield of each period. Fruit quality was assessed three times during the harvest season in 2013 and 2014 in Citra and Archer, by measuring fruit firmness, TSS, and TTA

treatment alone. The percentage of branched stems and length of branched stems was increased by DAP but even more so when combined with VCP. Flower bud density was positively correlated with stem density (r = 0.66) and branching (r = 0.55). Berry yield

strategy for bog management. In this study, a comparison of sanding and pruning was evaluated after one season based on berry yield, light and spray penetration into the canopy, and leaf wetness duration. Sanding and pruning were compared side-by-side at

for two growing seasons. Plots were evaluated by analysis of soil and plant tissue samples, determination of upright density (using ring sampling technique), and by collecting fruit samples to determine number and weight of berries (yield). After two

lowbush blueberry, growing proximally under similar, managed environmental conditions, exhibit dramatic differences in berry yield. In a multiyear study, Hepler and Yarborough (1991) demonstrated that the yield of 100 randomly selected clones ranged from

almost all have been much weaker than typical highbush seedlings. Deerberries have several characteristics that would be useful in highbush blueberry cultivars. The plants are very drought tolerant and can produce high berry yields when growing in dry

efficiency, improve weed control, and increase berry yield and quality. Although most growers prefer black plastic, a few use white-on-black plastic to reduce heat. More than 95% of production occurs in open fields; however, the use of high and low tunnels is

increased by DAP and little affected by phosphite treatments. Berry yield in Aug. 2007 was increased 79% by DAP, compared to the controls. Yields were even higher for treatment plots receiving DAP plus the VCP-Phosphite; especially the 8.96 P 2 O 5 /ha rate
