Mummy berry is a fungal disease that often infects blueberries. It is common in the northwest, mainly due to constant high levels of moisture throughout the year. 

Since Mummy Berry leads to many growers to use large amounts of fungicide, NCAP is conducting ongoing work with Oregon State University and blueberry growers to develop non-chemical controls.
