“Do You Spray?” Apple IPM Poster
Carroll, Juliet; Fargione, Michael; Schultz, Jill; Woodsen, Mary
A poster addressing the question of whether or not fruit has been sprayed was developed to inform the general public. Apple growers across New York requested this poster to help them inform people who visit their farm markets to purchase fruit and also to inform their farm workers about how this question can be answered proactively. In its first release in the Hudson Valley region, over half of the 150 apple growers attending the Winter Fruit School purchased a copy of the poster for their farm. To date the poster has been displayed in a variety of locations from farm markets to grower business offices.
