Event date: 2011-08-18

With blueberry production increasing at a rapid rate in southeastern states, the LSU AgCenter and other land grant universities are providing much-needed information for producers and consumers through All About Blueberries, a webpage on the website, eXtension.org. Putting information in a central location has proven to be helpful for the blueberry industry, not only in this region but around the world, thanks to a three-year United States Department of Agriculture grant, according to LSU AgCenter entomologist Natalie Hummel, who is coordinator of the grant.Anyone with an interest in growing or buying blueberries is provided the research-based information they need from this community of practice site, Hummel said. Community of practice means you have a team of people who are experts on a subject working together to grow knowledge, and its being built for this targeted audience thats called a community of interest, Hummel said.
