Richard Hentschel, host of GSU, addresses what should be done in the home orchard, starting with dormant pruning. First spray of the season is usually a dormant oil and moving on to the early cover sprays to protect emerging foliage and flowers from our windborne diseases like Cedar Apple Rust and Apple Scab. Finding your spray equipment early before you need it ensures you are ready. Take an inventory of your spray products and purchase any additional product. Allows read and follow label instructions.
