Yarborough speaks to Ellsworth American about drought shrinking blueberry crop

David Yarborough, professor emeritus of horticulture and emeritus wild blueberry specialist at the University of Maine, was interviewed by the Ellsworth American about the negative impact of this year’s drought on the wild blueberry crop. This season will see a decrease in yields due to the dry weather, with variations across regions depending on the severity of drought in the area. “It’s going to be less than last year. We’ll be lucky if we get 80 million pounds this year,” Yarborough said.
