The purpose of the Blueberry Certification Program is the facilitate movement of fresh blueberries from areas regulated for blueberry maggot to non-regulated areas while mitigating the risk of moving blueberry maggot outside the regulated area. All fresh market blueberry (Vaccinium sp.) fruits being moved from Alabama to non-infested areas in Canada must be grown under the conditions of the Blueberry Certification Program and be accompanied by a Movement Certification Label. Alabama’s Blueberry certification program is modeled after the Florida Department of Agriculture’s Blueberry program.
