Blueberry IPM-Scorch Virus (BlScV)

Blueberry scorch virus is a problematic virus for blueberry growers in New Jersey, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Previously unreported in New England, blueberry plants from fields in Connecticut and Massachusetts have recently tested positive for blueberry scorch virus. At present, the virus has only been identified in limited areas in each state; however, it is likely that the virus is present in additional areas in New England.
