Hello everybody! It’s that time of year that we see the booms make the rounds of the marsh. Casoron and Evital are a must and a staple in some of these pesticide programs. Also, early shots of herbicides are being utilized right now. It’s also nice to see some baby geese and wildlife wake up move around more and be more active. The scouting crews will start this week and make the rounds. We’ve had some reports of some early pests already. I’m not sure where we would be without them so a huge shout out to all of the IMP crews! I think with the Diazinon, everybody is still trying to find different ways to try new things and switch things up from the typical pest program that we had before. Frost watch is also in full swing (Everybody’s favorite time of year…jk). This is also a good time to work on our renovations and put drain tile and underground pipe in. As far as the actual cranberries go it’s pretty typical that our hybrids are farther along than our Steven’s. There are signs that the buds are starting to swell and some rapid growth. Try to stay positive and be safe!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, grower update.
