IPM Message for Cranberry Growers: Jun 17, 2014

Jun 17, 2014

We have had reports of spag and green spanworm flying in the past week.  Many growers are applying first fungicide (or second fungicides on very early varieties). Try to actually do an “in bloom” count to properly time your first fungicide. If you are applying Select or Select Max, please note that you cannot apply the herbicide between hook and fruit set.

We held our clinic on scales. If you think you have scale, please call the Ent Lab, ext 20 or just bring in a sample for ID.

Bumble bees will be arriving at the Station on June 19.  Contact Marty at x20 for more information.

Unfortunately, the product for which we did secure the 2ee for moss control does not seem to work as well as a product (not currently registered); both the same active ingredient. We will continue to pursue alternatives for moss control.
