Richard Hentschel host of Green Side Up, talks this week about taking care of the home fruit orchard. Cover sprays are applied to protect the developing fruit during the growing season and those sprays are more frequent in the spring and lessen as the season progresses. Home orchardists would typically use a combination product containing insecticides and fungicides.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
