After lunch we will:

  • Participate in field visits to the various management zones created for this host field and discuss prescription options.

Fire Blight Infection Risk Continues

Warmer temperatures and rain forecast this week put apple and pear orchards in bloom at risk of fire blight infection The fire blight prediction maps for apple and pear continue to be updated as more orchards in the earlier regions of the province enter into bloom. High to extreme infection risk is predicted for many regions in the southwest this week with rain in the forecast. Management will be critical during this time particularly if there is active fire blight in your orchard or neighbourhood.
