Grape harvest is underway for early and mid-season varieties. Downy and powdery mildew are showing up in vineyards. Table grapes have been especially nice this year. Primocane bramble harvest is also underway. Surprising low number of spotted wing Drosophila have been found in grapes or brambles. Frequent rains are very unwelcome as they generally have a negative effect on fruit quality in both grapes and brambles. Gala and Honey Crisp apples are being harvested. Weeds and row middle covers are growing excessively with all the recent rains.

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…]

grapes turning color

Early grapes are just beginning to soften and color (veraison). Summer raspberry harvest if winding down and fall bearing types are flowering. Blueberry harvest continues. Japanese beetle numbers continue to be relatively high in the Lafayette area. Peach harvest (for those fortunate to have a crop) has begun. Early apple cultivars are approaching harvest.


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…]


Plant nutritional status is important for all phases of plant growth and has a direct effect on vigor, fruitfulness, cold hardiness, and other factors. Tissue analysis is the most reliable means of determining plant nutritional status. Combined with soil testing, tissue analysis can help pinpoint the source of problems and determine what measures may be needed to insure proper nutrition of the crop. Tissue analysis samples should be collected at the appropriate time to give the most meaningful results. For strawberry, sample the first fully expanded leaves after renovation, usually in mid to late July. For brambles, sample leaves on non-fruiting canes (primocanes) between August 1 and 20. For blueberries sample leaves during the first week of harvest. For grapes, samples should be taken about 70 days after full bloom, usually early to mid August. Samples should be adequate in size. Collect 30-60 leaves for strawberries, brambles, and blueberries, and[Read More…]
