David Handley, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension educator and vegetable and small fruit specialist, was interviewed for Channel 2 (WLBZ) report on the spotted wing drosophila, a fruit fly that has Maine’s blueberry growers worried because it attacks ripening and not just rotten fruit. Handley, who is based at UMaine Extension’s Highmoor Farm in Monmouth, said the fly could have huge impacts on the wild blueberry industry. A raspberry grower interviewed for the report said the fly also is threatening his crops.
