ENY Late Summer Orchard Field Meeting

August 16

2:00pm – 4:00pm

Join us for a late-summer field meeting. Cornell researchers and extension specialists will give talks on management tasks to be mindful of late in the season as we head into harvest. We will then walk through the orchard to look for some of the issues discussed, and further discuss their management strategies in the field. We will then discuss how the crop is shaping up around the greater ENY region, and will allow ample time for you to share your thoughts on this year’s crop, and to answer any other questions you may have.

1.25 DEC credits are available for this meeting. Please register ahead.

Contact Mike at 518 410 6823 or mrb254 with any questions.
