Report on UMaine Assessment of Blueberry Crop

The Bangor Daily News reported from UMaine research facility Blueberry Hill Farm in Jonesboro that the 2011 blueberry crop could be well below average if the region continues to remain dry. UMaine blueberry specialist and horticulture professor David Yarborough said moisture levels — too much or the lack of it — is the biggest factor in the crop success. UMaine President Paul Ferguson was also on hand as part of a listening tour of the state to determine how best UMaine can serve the state’s agriculture industry.
