Are you ready for a new field season? 2021 Wild Blueberry Pest Management Guide is now available!

Monday, April 12, 2021

Hello everyone, 

We are starting to see bud swelling in fields near the Truro area. In early fields and fields down in southwest Nova Scotia, we might be able to see further plant development. However, I am still waiting for reports from growers in different regions to give you a clear update. Through the blight season, I will give at least one update each week on this blog and Twitter (@NSWildBlue). Please check back here for updates.

Growers should begin checking their crop fields for bud development and potential winter damage due to little snow coverage this past winter. If you would like to share the plant development stages and field conditions with me from your fields and regions, please contact me at 902-890-0472 or email: I appreciate your information and contribution!

Lastly, we updated the wild blueberry pest management guide (2021) and it is available on Perennia’s website: While you are using this guide for your pest management, please don’t forget to check with your processor or buyer to confirm what products are allowable for their markets.
