The first ever MSU-sponsored Chestnut Orchard Establishment meeting will be held Thursday, April 20 at the MSU Clarksville Research Center. Meet the researchers who set up the only Cost of Production tool that is available and featured on the MSU website, www.chestnuts.msu.edu. As you can see in the agenda, other important topics will be covered including the cultivars to plant and how to care for the orchard. We will also be covering new developments. Again, COS team members will be making featured presentations. You will not want to miss this meeting.
Once again, we provide our COS members the convenience to register for this meeting by clicking on the the registration page (for registration, click here). If you are thinking about establishing an orchard or have just started, we think the Orchard Establishment meeting is a must for you. Take a look at the agenda (click here) for this meeting. A $50 fee is required, payable to Michigan State University.
Also, be aware that our first Field Trip will be held after that meeting at 4:00pm, the subject will be fertilizing your chestnut trees and a demonstration will be provided. Field trips are always free to our members and $25.00 to non-members, just like last year. We hope to see you at the this meeting and/or at the field trip after this meeting on April 20.
