Open to the public. Commercial and Residential Producers are welcomes to this FREE Event.

Blueberries can be a profitable, specialty crop that commercial and backyard growers can produce successfully. Participants will be guided through the soil and water testing process as well as discuss production aspects of blueberries. Participants will gain hands-on knowledge of proper planting and pruning techniques to maximize disease prevention and insect control, thus maximizing plant health and productivity.

Interested participants are requested to bring soil sample (1/2 lb) from their plot where they plant blueberries and water sample (30 ml) they apply during irrigation to test pH.
