Southern highbush blueberries (SHB) are grown in two different

production systems in Florida. In north-central and

central Florida, SHB are primarily grown in a deciduous

system, where the plants go dormant and defoliate during

late fall or early winter. In this system, hydrogen cyanamide

is often used to accelerate vegetative budbreak to support

earlier flowering and fruit set and to concentrate the fruit

ripening.
