Commercial Blueberry Pest Control Recommendations for New Jersey, 2021

First Paragraph:
Welcome to the revised 2021 blueberry spray guide. Please be aware that the recommendations made in this guide are aimed at New Jersey crop production situations and do not always apply to other growing locations. Specifically, registrations and rates may differ. Always refer to the label to identify the legal rates, methods of application, site and target organisms. All spray formulations are presented in amount of formulated product per acre. Apply sprays so that good soil or foliage coverage is achieved without excessive runoff. It is also critical to be confident of your sprayer calibration. Insufficient material delivered to the soil (herbicides), emerged weeds (herbicides), or blueberry surface (insecticides, fungicides) results in poor efficacy whereas excess material can lead to phytotoxicity and illegal residues on the harvested fruit. Not all pesticide treatments recommended here are necessary to manage weeds, insect, and disease problems in every field. Always use local scouting information on weeds, insects and diseases in arriving at herbicide, insecticide and fungicide spray decisions. Always read and follow the label instructions when using pesticides.
