Blueberries well-adapted to Mississippi; however, in recent years weather events such as the large and continuous rainfall, tropical storms, and freeze events have all led to challenges for growing quality blueberry fruit. We will discuss the problems that we encountered due to the change in climate, but also ways to mitigate loss.
