Mar 7, 2019Two-day in-depth school for tree fruit growers planned
The Cornell Fruit Team is planning a “Precision Crop Load Management and Plant Growth Regulator Use in Apples,” an in-depth school for tree fruit growers, extension educators, and crop consultants on March 26 and 27, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Syracuse, New York
In addition to Cornell University speakers, the meeting will feature invited scientists from Washington State University, Penn State University and Michigan State University. Industry representatives from MOOG, Valent BioSciences, and AgroFresh will also participate.
This in-depth school will serve as a vehicle for fruit industry leaders to learn of advances in precision orchard management and to explore the future use of computer-aided vision and robotics to manage crop load precisely. Growers will be given the opportunity to give input to this discussion. The meeting attendance will be limited to 150 people, so we urge you to register early before space is filled up. The meeting is being advertised to members of the fruit production industries in the eastern United States.
Details and registration information are available at the In-Depth Tree Fruit School site.
