The 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.

The meetings begin with an orchard tour led by the meeting hosts; followed by seasonal updates by Penn State Extension Tree Fruit Specialists; and end with pesticide license re-certification credits awarded pending approval by PDA.

The program highlights include:

  • Gearing Up to Manage Tree Fruit Diseases in 2018
  • Integrated Weed Management
  • Monitoring and Management for Insect and Mite Pests
  • Apple Thinning and Promoting Return Bloom
Who is this for?

Tree fruit growers and their employees.
