  • 2015 New Jersey Commercial Tree Fruit Production Guide
    This fruit production guide is intended for the commercial grower, and is intended to facilitate decision-making. It is not a substitute for pesticide labeling. Read the pesticide label before applying any pesticide.

  • Effect of Pruning on Cold Hardiness of Fruit Trees
    It seems that we are experiencing more unusually warm periods during mid- and late-winter, so trees may be more susceptible than in the past to moderately low winter temperatures. Lessons from years in which there was a sudden drop in temperature indicate that trees most injured were those that lacked adequate vigor, those that were too vigorous, and those that had been pruned before the cold event.
