Recommended Blueberry Spray Schedule

The Kentucky Blueberry Growers Association recommends following the Blueberry Spray schedule on pages 37-41 in the 2013 Small Fruit and Grape Spray Guide.

In Kentucky many commercial blueberry farmers follow a conventional spray schedule to avoid fruit loss caused by fungus and pests. The pests of most concern are the Plum Curculio and more recently the Spotted Wing Drosophila.
