Product Description

The Highbush Blueberry and Its Management is for the grower.  It is a culmination of 20 years of research and of helping growers to produce quality crops of highbush blueberries.  It answers some of the questions posed by homewoners, small diversified growers, and larger specialized commercial growers.  Parts of the book will be of limited interest to some, but they are necessary for a balanced treatment of the subject.  Some older classic studies have been included, but newer references, citing work that is relevant to the grower, make up the bulk of the material.  This book is focused on North American production practices but should provide good background material for growers throughout the world.
