Hello everybody! We are finally seeing fruit, and fruit sizing is underway. We have waited a long time and did a lot of work to get to this point and the journey is not over. We have started to see some flea beetle in areas and since we are seeing Diazinon go away it’s going to be interesting to say the least. We are seeing fewer and fewer options in our tool box to battle these problems. A lot of growers are trying Venom for the first time. Time will tell how well this works. Also growers are still applying fertilizer to the beds and looking to see what they need. We also need some rain just like the whole state of Wisconsin needs right now. Our ponds and reservoirs need to be recharged like everyone in the industry. Stay safe everyone!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, grower update.
