Canker management workshop scheduled

Confused about cankers? Would you like your pruning crew to be able to better identify cankers while pruning? The first line of defense against tree fruit diseases is good sanitation. Get a better handle on disease management with this canker management workshop from Penn State Extension.
Canker Management During Pruning - A Hands-on Workshop in English and Spanish
The workshop will be held Jan. 5, from 1:30-4 p.m., at the Penn State Fruit Research and Extension Center, 290 University Dr., Biglerville, PA 17307.

The workshop will start in the auditorium, and then will move into apple and peach orchards to take a firsthand look at different-sized trees with cankers. Speakers will discuss management strategies and the importance of canker removal. Please dress accordingly, since part of this event will occur outside.

There is no fee to attend this event. However, pre-registration is requested. For more information, email , or call her at 717-334-6271, ext. 314.
