A Grower’s Guide to Organic Apples
Peck, Gregory; Merwin, Ian A.
Many New York fruit growers have expressed interest in producing for the organic sector, where prices are relatively high and demand is increasing. However, reliable science-based information for commercial organic tree fruit production in cool humid regions such as the Northeastern United States has been difficult to find. This production guide compiles and distills information from university research trials, making the essential elements for organic apple production available to growers, extension agents, crop consultants, researchers, and others who desire to produce organic apples. The goal of this guide is to help growers produce the highest quality fruit possible, utilizing organic techniques and systems.
