Tree Fruit Growers Meeting
Thursday, May 31, 2012, 10 AM to Noon
Wickham’s Fruit Farm, Route 25, Cutchogue, New York
All tree fruit growers are invited to attend a grafting workshop to be held Thursday, May 31st at Wickham’s Fruit Farm in Cutchogue. We will meet at the farmstand at 10 AM.
Steve Hoying, Cornell Tree Fruit Specialist, at the Hudson Valley Lab, will demonstrate techniques to top work established apple trees. Top-working enables growers to change an established, undesirable cultivar by grafting a preferred cultivar to the branches. In addition, pollinator cultivars can be grown sooner by top-working established trees.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to top-work trees. Please contact Linda Holm at 727-7850, ext 341 or email@example.com, if you plan on attending. Persons needing special accommodations should also contact Linda, at least one week prior to the workshop.
