Blueberry Specialist in Report on Crop Pollination Issues

University of Maine Cooperative Extension professor and blueberry specialist David Yarborough was interviewed for a Bangor Daily News article published in the Kennebec Journal and other news outlets about pollination problems in many Maine blueberry barrens caused by last week’s gloomy weather, which discouraged honeybees from doing their work buzzing from flower to flower. Bees are critical for pollination success, Yarborough said.
