This past week has been warm enough that we’re seeing activity in the Lafayette area. Southern areas are further along. See the note from Englebrecht’s Orchard in the Evansville area. We appreciate their help with crop condition reports and welcome others to submit their observations as well. In the Lafayette area brambles are pushing rapidly. Some are past 3/4 inch green and leaves are starting to show. Early grapes are just starting bud swell. Apples are mostly at half inch green. Paw paw flowers are swollen but have not started to open yet. Strawberry leaves continue to grow but flower buds are not yet visible in the crowns. There is still a risk of frost across the central and northern part of the state. Best wishes for a frost-free spring.

Growers across the state are finishing up pruning. Most apple and blueberry growers are done, and bramble and grape growers are finishing up.  Even though this is a late spring compared to some recent years, there are still chances of spring frost damage. Grape growers can use long or double pruning to help delay bud break and avoid frost damage. Peach growers also delay pruning as much as possible to help delay bloom. But for other fruit crops, little can be done to passively avoid frost. Hopefully we will have a good year and no spring frost damage will occur. Grape growers with a high incidence of trunk disease may want to consider applications of Topsin M after pruning is complete, or anytime that pruning is done in wet weather. The jury is still out of the efficacy of these applications, but they can’t hurt. We are seeing increased incidences[Read More…]

With harvest around the corner for many fruit crops, I thought this would be a good time to remind readers about our email lists. Various forms of social media is used by just about everyone in today’s society.  While Facebook and Twitter are much more commonly used than email, there is still a place for email lists. Mail lists continue to be a successful communication tool for groups of people. The way a mail list works is that people subscribe and then have the authority to post messages to the list. All other subscribers on the list receive the messages. One message can be sent to hundreds of readers at once. Replies to messages on a mail list can either go only to the sender of the message or to the entire list. Purdue HLA Extension maintains two mail lists for users. The “Fruitveg” list is for all fruit and vegetable growers, farm[Read More…]

Japanese beetles appear to be especially abundant this year. They started showing up a couple of weeks ago and are now numerous in many areas. This past year Japanese beetle populations were higher than they have been for a number of years and this year looks to be a repeat.  We’ve seen severe damage to small fruits, grapes, as well as the Pristine apples, plums, etc. Adult beetles are relatively easy to control, but after insecticide treatment to knock them down, populations reappear as the insecticide wears off. So, it may require more than one application to control them. Sevin and the pyrethroids will provide the best control, although Sevin may only give about 3 days of protection. Watch pre-harvest intervals (PHIs) in small fruits if harvest is on-going. And note that the REI for Sevin can be 2 to 6 days in grapes. One note about damage: It often[Read More…]
