Nova Scotia Wild Blueberry Best Management Practices
The Nova Scotia Wild Blueberry Best Management Practices directory was developed and designed through the Sustainability Committee of the Wild Blueberry Producers Association of Nova Scotia with help from Perennia. The purpose of this webpage is to highlight the BMPS from all aspects of wild blueberry production in Nova Scotia. It will help growers and other interested parties easily access resources on how to produce wild blueberries sustainably and in an economically viable manner. The intent of this page is to keep practices updated and relevant to modern wild blueberry production.
Pollination is critical to forming the fruit, therefore adequate pollinating units and how they are managed is critical to ensuring adequate yields.
The University of Maine, Cooperative Extension has a useful factsheet on Pollination http://umaine.edu/blueberries/factsheets/bees/629-honey-bees-and-blueberry-pollination/
