Due 9/ 7: Short, important survey for cider apple growers

By Terence Bradshaw

Cultivation of specific cider apple cultivars, including European bittersweets, heirloom North American cultivars, and other dual-purpose fruit is a small but growing component of the New England apple industry. I am collaborating with faculty from UMASS and University of Maine to conduct a short-medium term research and education project supporting increased or improved production of specialty cider apple cultivars on New England farms. We will submit a grant shortly, well before the end of the harvest season, and wish for grower input to rank specific research goals that we’ll address in the project.

The survey is quite short, as is out turnaround time- we would appreciate all responses to be submitted by Friday, September 7.”
