Technical Abstract: Local extension agents and USDA-ARS research scientists are excellent resources for various aspects of blueberry production, but several print and web-based resources are also available to help commercial blueberry growers. Growers are encouraged to consider the source for all web-based information. While university web sites and bulletins are always reliable, caution must be exercised when visiting websites from other sources. Be aware that some recommendations are region-specific and the date that the information was posted must be considered as recommendations may have changed. Growers in New Jersey should focus on materials available for the Northeast, but highbush blueberry is grown in other parts of the country, such as Michigan and the Pacific Northwest and some information from these areas may be applicable. The resources noted are not intended to be exhaustive, but rather a brief introduction to the print and web resources available to commercial growers.
