Hello everybody! This time of year we have already sprayed for our first round of bugs before our wonderful bees get here. We should be seeing blossoms on our hybrids and soon after on our Steven’s. I’m curious as to see how things play out with our issues from last year with our side shooting from the growers that had been hit with a good amount of hail. Things have been really dry so far this year and we could use some rain for sure. Some growers are dealing with drought issues with this heat. We have also transitioned out of our frost protection mode and now are in irrigation mode. Everybody deals with it different.
Soon we will be looking for an opportunity to see our first fungicide shot of the year when in bloom. It’s always tricky working around the bees and we do our best to keep them out of harm’s way. Without our bees, it’s very hard to have a crop of our beautiful berries. Stay safe everybody and please “bee” safeThis article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, grower update.
