Management Options and Rootstock Varieties for Organic Apple Production (in partnership with NOFA-NY)

Thursday, August 1, 2019 at 3:00pm to 7:00pm

Cornell Orchards (Cornell AES)
701 Dryden Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Join us for an afternoon and see how mulch compares to tillage and allowed herbicides in terms of weed suppression and soil health in a block of ‘Honeycrisp’, and how ‘Modi’ performs on different rootstocks in a high-density tall spindle orchard. Advances in organic management of insect pests and diseases will also be discussed. The NY Soil Health Trailer will also be on-site with demonstrations to show participants how healthy soil compares to degraded soil.

This free event is open to the public and includes a light meal.

It is part of a Summer Field Day Series, organized by NOFA-NY, Organic@Cornell, and the Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station
