Michigan State University Extension in cooperation with the Midwest Nut Producers Council and Chestnut Growers, Inc. is offering a free workshop for sweet chestnut growers to learn about relevant pest problems as well as how to estimate crop load. 

This hands-on workshop will include a review of important pests and growers are encouraged to bring unknown plant and insect samples for diagnosis.  Please place samples in sealed bags as courtesy to our host farm.  The meeting will be held outside in a chestnut orchard, so dress accordingly and plan for inclement weather.   Registration is required but the program is free.
