Testing a wind machine as a method of protecting against flower frost in cultivated wild blueberries
The objective of this project is to measure the performance of a portable wind machine under different weather conditions in commercial cultivated wild blueberries crops.
Measure the performance of a wind machine under different weather conditions in terms of:
From 2021 to 2022
This project will modify current protocols with the addition of labile carbon to preserve or rapidly restore the activity of beneficial microorganisms.

As part of this project, the soil water status at a chosen blueberry farm will be monitored at 40 spots over the course of the production year. We will seek to identify the relationship between water extraction, physicochemical and environmental factors, and yield levels that could help explain yield variability.
