Pesticide-Limited

Although our blueberry patches are not certified  organic we strive to remain  Pesticide Free  as reasonably as possible. The word pesticide can have a very broad understanding.  Pesticides could cover all types of insecticides, herbicides, fungicides etc. whether they be certified organic or not.  We understand our previous use of the term Pesticide Free could seem misleading in the absolute sense but we feel that by not using products typically considered commercial and ones that could be used organically the general public would understand its use and meaning.

We want to be upfont so we are informing our customers that this year we found it necessary to apply for the first time a dormant oil spray in one of our patches, once in the late spring prior to buds opening. This includes a 99% pure mineral oil and a Lime/Sulphur combination. Although in some circles this would not qualify as certified organic it has been safely practiced for decades among fruit growers and because of its early season application it would have minimal effect on beneficial insects that don’t appear until later and any residue would have virtually disappeared prior to fruit development.

For insect control we have used a either insecticidal or dish soap occasionally combined  with isoprpyl alchohol  in a spot sraying application. This would probably be acceptable in the organic setting.

Our weed control  is done manually never using commercial herbicides such as RoundUp. We have never  used commercial insectides or poisons such as Malathion etc.  The only fungicide used would be possibly the sulphur content of our dormant oil spray.

If you have any questions or concerns we welcome them.
