To the membership of the Florida Blueberry Growers Association.
Please see below from Doug Phillips, University of Florida Blueberry Extension Coordinator.
The link below is to a great webinar on pollination of highbush blueberries by Dr. Rufus Isaacs, an entomology professor and pollination expert from Michigan State University. Even though the discussion is primarily focused on northern highbush blueberries in Michigan, many of the principles and benefits are applicable to southern highbush blueberries. Take a look and let me know if you have any questions.
A couple of other pollination items:
1. An article on pollination best practices in southern highbush blueberry in Florida will be coming out this fall in The Blueberry News.
2. The grand opening of the UF/IFAS Honeybee Research & Extension Laboratory is August 25 (see details below).
