Since he was an undergraduate student at UVM nearly 25 years ago, Terence Bradshaw has worked with the UVM Apple Program. Today, he is fondly known as the "apple guy" at UVM where he is an assistant professor and director of UVM’s Horticulture Research and Education Center. The facility hosts several research programs led by UVM professors, students and UVM Extension agents that aim to support Vermont’s agricultural communities.
Together with orchard manager and Plant and Soil Science graduate student Jessica Foster, Bradshaw is helping Vermont apple growers reclaim one of the state’s historical major export crops. “We’re answering the questions that Vermont apple growers have,” said Foster. See how they’re working with local farmers to optimize yields and navigate the evolving apple market.
