By: Farm Progress – August 31, 2023

“We hope the data and analysis this project generates will help Michigan blueberry growers pick a pest management strategy that really works for their farms.

Brazil has been a big part of that. And really over the last almost 20 years, the Black Sea region, Ukraine in particular, has become a big part of that.”
