Apple Residue Report released by Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission

Since 2011, the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission (WTFRC) has conducted studies in apple and cherry to generate pesticide residue data for commonly used insecticides and fungicides to help Washington growers make more informed choices about their spray programs.

The WTFRC Internal Program recently completed its 2020 study in apple which included 12 insecticides/acaricides and five fungicides applied at either 100 or 200 gal water/acre in a modern high-density ‘Gala’ orchard.

The results of that study, as well as previous reports from similar projects on apple and cherry are now available on the WTFRC homepage: www.treefruitresearch.org.
