The 2016 Spring Orchard Meetings are being held in orchards across the state. Growers have an opportunity to visit other commercial tree fruit operations, learn from Extension specialists who are experts in their program areas, and discuss current tree fruit issues with other growers at a critical time of the growing season. There is no fee for these meetings.
The Penn State Extension Young Grower Alliance is hosting a tour of the USDA-ARS Appalachian Fruit Research Station in Kearneysville, WV for young, next generation producers of specialty crops. Participants will discuss tree and small fruit research plantings and laboratory studies with horticulture, plant pathology, entomology, plant breeding, and engineering faculty.
