Blueberry Netting and Pest Management
Bartlett's Blueberry Farm in Newport, NH.
Tuesday, July 3, 5:30-8pm.

Each year, the Bartlett's net their 5 acres of Pick-Your-Own highbush blueberries.
They estimate that the bird netting has saved close to 50% of their crop.
During the meeting, the netting procedure and Bill Bartlett's customized net-application equipment
(a modified corn sprayer) will be demonstrated.
This is a great example of efficient large-scale netting, for those who are considering a small- or larger-scale netting project.

We will also discuss pest and crop management during the meeting.
