Blueberry Workshop
Tuesday, February 11

Join us for a blueberry production workshop focused on biological and cultural controls for managing mummy berry and spotted wing drosophila.

Jay Pscheidt, extension plant pathology specialist, and Jade Florence, botany and plant pathology graduate student, at Oregon State Univeristy will share their latest research on managing mummy berry disease. Jay and Jade are currently working with NCAP and certified organic blueberry growers on a project to improve mulching to manage mummy berry.

Plus, Amy Dreves, research and extension entomologist, at Oregon State University, will present monitoring, management, and on-going research of spotted wing drosophila (SWD) for blueberry growers. She will also demonstrate the larval extraction bag method.

The workshop will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Eugene (1685 W 13th Ave, Eugene, OR 97405).

Registration details coming in January.
