Commercial apple growers are in the heart of harvest, but if there’s any time in the pick-up truck, tune into a new series of technical information. The Orchard Outlook Podcast is published by Michelle Cortens, tree fruit specialist for Perennia in Nova Scotia.
“This podcast is intended for all commercial apple growers, not just the Nova Scotia region,” says Cortens.
Check it out on the Perennia website -- https://www.perennia.ca/learning/podcast/--
or anywhere that you tune into podcasts such as Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts. Here’s what has been posted to date:
- - Don't play with fire blight with guest Dr. George Sundin
- - Apple maggot birth control with guest Dr. Suzanne Blatt
- - Sensing fruit maturity with guest Dr. John DeLong
The plan is to release one episode per month, with bonus episodes as needed. All episodes will go into detail about apple production practices.
