SWD update - August 9th

Friday, August 9, 2013

As of mid-day on August 9th there are no reported captures of SWD in Northern and Central Nova Scotia.

There have been scattered captures the last two weeks in the Annapolis valley, at very low levels and at very few locations.

As we begin wild blueberry harvest this week, it is important for growers to keep an eye on their SWD traps, particularly in fields that are more than a week away from harvest.

The weather looks very promising for a great start to the harvest season, (once Saturday passes) with forecasted sunny conditions and temperatures in the low 20s.
