GROWTH AND PRODUCTIVITY OF HIGHBUSH BLUEBERRIES AS AFFECTED BY SOIL AMENDMENTS, NITROGEN FERTILIZATION AND IRRIGATION

M.J. Lareau
Northland highbush blueberry grown under four soil management practices and fertilized with 3 rates of N outyielded Blueray, Berkeley and Rubel. All cultivars performed best with either incorporated sawdust combined with sawdust mulch or incorporated sawdust combined with trickle irrigation and an annual sulfur application. In spite of differences in NH4- and NO3-N in the soil and total leaf N throughout the growing season, no yield differences were noted between the N rates. Generally, treatments had little effect on leaf elemental content and soil composition.
