New feature on MSU’s cherry website

The new MSU cherry website has many attributes that will benefit Michigan growers. Due to the complex nature of producing cherries, growers rely on up-to-date horticultural and pest management information from Michigan State University Extension staff and specialists. In order to simplify growers’ internet search time, all Michigan cherry information has been merged into a single internet location. Our goal is to have a well-organized, relevant site where growers have access to important and timely resources.
Later this spring, we will add another useful feature to this website: new data sheets on sweet cherry varieties. Data from all promising sweet cherry cultivars will be posted in a consistent manner, and growers can access these pages to help design sweet cherry blocks. Growers can read about tree and fruit characteristics that have been compiled by MSU researchers over many years. We hope to have these pages up by the beginning of May, so keep your eyes out for this new website upgrade.
