New MSU web resource for cherry growers

We have rolled out a new cherry website for this season that is designed to concentrate all of our MSU cherry-related resources into a “one-stop shopping” location. Please check us out on the web at www.cherries.msu.edu. Throughout the year, we will continue to expand this site. Presently, you will find:

  • Current season links to the CAT Alert and newsletters produced by the Northwest Michigan Horticultural Research Station.
  • Photos and descriptions of common insect pests, weeds and diseases of cherries.
  • Photos and descriptions of beneficial insects.
  • Weather and climate topics including cold hardiness, use of degree days, etc.
  • Varieties and rootstocks information.
  • Tips on specific horticultural practices.
  • Recommendations for effective pollination and information about pollinators.
  • Links to labor management, marketing and financial management resources.
  • A directory of MSUE local contacts for cherry growers.
  • Presentations from the Northwest Michigan Orchard and Vineyard Show.

We are interested in your feedback, so please do not hesitate to give us your two cents at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Also, look forward to an apple website in the near future.
