Fruit productivity of lowbush blueberries varies by the degree of pollination, genetics of the clone, soil fertility, water availability, insect infestation, plant diseases, and local growing conditions. Wild (lowbush) blueberries have an average mature weight of grams ( oz).Family: Ericaceae. -pests eat and destroy 1/3 of world's crops (for every $1 in pesticides farmers save $)-Only species of insects have ability to cause economic impact on crops-pests focus on crops because they are monocultures-pesticides reduce crop loss to weeds, insects and plant diseases.
