Recent Newsletters Now Available

July 19, 2012
  • The Small Fruit Consortium newsletter is  now available, here.

    Prime Ark 45, floricane fruit

The first article is from Dr. John Clark. He talks about his newly released floricane fruiting blackberry cultivar, “Osage”.   I haven’t tried this one but it sounds tasty!  Plants will be available in 2013.  There are also a couple of nice summer  checklists for blackberries, raspberries and strawberries near the end of the newsletter that are worth checking out.

  • Dr. Donn Johnson’s latest edition of the Fruit and Nut Newsletter can be found here. You’ll find an update of some important pests.
  • If you haven’t seen the 2012 SE Vegetable Crop Handbook, it can be found here.

If you download it to your computer, you can get a full screen of the guide and eliminate The Grower advertising.  This handbook covers everything from starting transplants to postharvest handling. It is primarily conventional production practices but it does provide information on how to incorporate biocontrol into your production, using cover crops and other cultural practices to produce healthy crops.
