Holistic Apple Scab and Fireblight Control
April 1 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm$40
Apple scab and fireblight are two of the biggest disease issues apple growers ever have to contend with in any given season. 2016 was a relatively low pressure year, but who knows what 2017 will look like? In this workshop we will discuss the biology and ecology of each disease, disease cycles, forecasting tools, varietal resistance/susceptibility, control opportunities, and what to do if the inevitable strikes! We will use a variety of approaches to examine trees and leaves, discuss how to assess current year infection potential, and how to use techy forecasting tools to better prepare and holistically manage for these nefarious diseases.
Space is limited, pre-registration is required.
$40 or $35 for those who pre-register by 3/26
