Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine
Agricultural Extension Service, College/University
Since 1945, Maine’s blueberry growers and processors have provided financial support for research at the University of Maine. Through this successful research partnership, improved cropping practices have been developed such as Integrated Crop Management (ICM) and Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Growers throughout the crop cycle monitor disease and insect levels to help minimize fruit destruction without harming the environment.
