There will be two commercial fruit grower meetings this week. On Tuesday (April 16) starting at 11:00AM, we will meet at Silver Creek Orchards in Nelson County to review current crop conditions and upcoming management decisions. On Thursday (April 18) at 7:00AM, we will meet at the Alson H. Smith, Jr. AREC for our first breakfast update meeting. Immediately following the breakfast meeting at the AREC, we will walk up the hill to view a Voen orchard covering system that was recently installed by Dr. Peck.
The Voen covering was funded in part by a grant from the Virginia Agricultural Council.
Future meeting dates and additional resources for tree-fruit producers can be found at the new Tree Fruit Extension and Outreach website.
