Fire blight risk…again

By Terence Bradshaw

A glitch in the NEWA system while I was writing that last post was preventing the importing of forecast data into the model. Now that it’s fixed, the risk levels look worse that I originally presented. I see that my image links still aren’t coming through via email, but they are on the associated blog post. I won’t post every chart again, but suffice to say that every site in Vermont with open blossoms is at risk this week. Growers would be wise to check NEWA and, again, apply strep to blocks with open blossoms ASAP.
