These three videos highlight the wild blueberry industry in Maine. The first gives a general overview: How are wild blueberries different from cultivated? What are their health benefits? The second delves into research by the Extension to help blueberry growers: How is disease spread? What do native bees have to do with blueberries? And the third examines one research project in detail: Why is Dan Bell pollinating individual flowers by hand, and what does a tuning fork have to do with it?
Produced by Anya Rose 2010
Funding for these videos was provided by the Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine, by a USDA specialty Crop Initiative Grant, and by the University of Maine.
