With the crop slowing down and cooler temperature, blueberry growers are discussing when to apply hydrogen cyanamide. NWS Melbourne, FL sent a statement out today that there should be lower than normal temperatures for the Florida peninsula the second week of December (see link below). Remember this is only an outlook but could be a useful tool in planning upcoming activities in the field.
Please let me know if you have any questions and don’t forget to register for Winter Weather School (http://lake.ifas.ufl.edu/agriculture/citrus/documents/WinterWeatherSchoolAnnouncement.pdf ) scheduled for December 6 in Tavares.
