Calderwood talks with media about wild blueberries 

Lily Calderwood talked with WABI (Channel 5) and News Center Maine at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Wild Blueberry Conference on Saturday in Bangor. “This is a time for the university to share with growers all the research-based education that we do,” said the University of Maine wild blueberry specialist and assistant professor of horticulture. “Growers are coming up with new ideas for value-added products and there are new market initiatives happening, so that’s exciting.” The Bangor Daily News reported “many conversations centered around how to make wild blueberries stand out, especially compared to their low-bush counterparts, while keeping the crop efficient and competitive in light of the changing climate, pest and disease pressures.”
