Maine’s Blueberry Crop Expected To Be Down, But Prices Should Rise
UMaine Cooperative Extension blueberry specialist David Yarborough told the Ellsworth American the blueberry crop is expected to be down this year, but the reduction in supply will likely drive up prices. Yarborough also said Maine’s wild blueberry crop is expected to be one of the smallest since 2005. The Maine crop was affected by an early spring bloom, followed by frost, and then arid conditions in August. Mainebiz and MPBN also reported on Yarborough’s predictions.
