Killers Frost Damaged More Than Half of Nova Scotia’s Blueberry Crop

Based on inspection of field reports, Nova Scotia suffered a loss of 60% of their wild crop, Blueberry by killer frost which otherwise produces around 60 million pounds of the fruit yearly.

“It’s the end of the year before a proposal would go into the federal government under disaster relief, so growers can’t expect anything this year from it … which doesn’t do a lot to pay the bills this year,” said Barron Blois, President of the Wild Blueberry Producers Association of Nova Scotia.
