My research and outreach program is designed to address sustainability issues in the tree fruit and viticulture industries in Vermont. Specific program areas include: technical support to address horticultural and pest management needs of Vermont fruit growers; assessment of organic apple production systems in cool, humid climates; grape cultivar evaluation; assessment of apple production systems for hard cider markets; and mitigation of apple replant disease.
