    There seemed to be a positive effect. I haven't collected all the data yet but by looking it appears that the fruit have less virus where reflective mulch was used. I think some other elements of the strategy need to be developed yet but it looks good this year.

  Bill, how did the silver mulch work out with the aphids.  One of my suppliers has a chrome finished surface, wonder if it might work better.
