NEW YORK: Apple harvest is just beginning to take shape in New York. It looks like this will be another good year with another possible record harvest, due in part to everyone’s hard work and ample amounts of rain from Mother Nature.
With that said, we need to make sure we protect the apple crop right up until the time we harvest. There are still summer diseases, (sooty blotch and fly speck) that we need to consider. We also need to keep in mind harvest applications for bins stored this fall and winter.
Continue to scout for late insects, especially in problem blocks. Let’s finish the year with a profitable and safe harvest.
