It's not too early to mark your calendar for the annual N.Y. Fruit Pest Control Field Day, which will take place during Labor Day week on Sept. 5 and 6, as dictated by tradition. We remain with our traditional practice of holding the Hudson Valley installment on the first day, and then moving to Geneva for the western NY perspective on the second day. Activities will commence in Highland on Wednesday, the 5th, with registration, coffee, etc., at the Hudson Valley Laboratory, 8:30 am. The tour will proceed to the orchards to view plots and preliminary data from field trials involving new fungicides, miticides, and insecticides on apples. On Thursday, the 6th, Geneva participants will register starting at 8:30 in the lobby of Barton Lab, after which we will view and discuss results from field trials on tree fruits and grapes. It is anticipated that the tour of field plots will be completed by noon. Save the dates.
