WSU Cherry Fruit School shares better ideas from bud to bucket

Sharing research updates and recommended production practices with Northwest cherry growers is the aim of the 2019 Cherry Fruit School, hosted by extension specialists from Washington State University (WSU) Tree Fruit Extension and Oregon State University, Tuesday-Wednesday, March 12-13.

The event will be held at: 

  • The Confluence and Technology Center in Wenatchee, Washington.
  • The Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center in Prosser, Washington.
  • The Discovery Center at The Dalles, Oregon.
  • The Landmark Cinemas in West Kelowna, British Columbia.

WSU Fruit School presents the latest science and practices in cherry growth and production. Presentations cover pertinent topics from tree establishment and bud development through harvest, including physiology, breeding, nutrition, crop load and harvest economics. Orchard managers and operators can learn from leading researchers and a panel of top Pacific Northwest cherry producers from three different growing areas. All three locations include speakers.

“The Cherry Fruit School lets growers gain the latest information on best management practices and experiences, helping them make informed decisions for stronger, healthier orchards and better crops,” said Bernardita Sallato, WSU Tree Fruit Extension specialist and co-organizer of the event.

Cost is $180. Registration closes March 5.
