Abstract

Lowbush blueberry is an important crop in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec. Accurate evaluation of agronomic practices currently requires destructive sampling and loss of productive fields. We showed that the point intercept method is a rapid and reliable nondestructive alternative for predicting biomass and yield of lowbush blueberry and competing species.
