Blueberry Disease or Pests

Asked May 18, 2020, 4:12 PM EDT

Hi. Hope someone can help. I have 5 blueberry plants Misty, South Moon. All have adequate irrigation and slow release fertilizer. They get about 4 hours of morning sun. Shade afternoon. This is a new problem that appears to be spreading. See images. Early new tip growth dies back-to red then black. Berries dry up and fall off from clusters. Some may be okay later. I've sprayed these, but my timing is late...I think.

Thank you for your question. The assigned expert has been unavailable. I suggest you contact your own county Extension office, where staff will know about local issues involving blueberries. Here is their webpage: https://www.placer.ca.gov/1513/Farm-Home
