NCAT horticulture specialist Guy Ames is embarking on a comprehensive update of our ATTRA publication Organic & Low-Spray Peach Production (2003), probably also incorporating information on organic and low-spray plum production. As always, we are interested in institutional research but also GROWER EXPERIENCE.
Because farmers (especially organic farmers) are so often conducting their own research, and because organic production of peaches and plums is so difficult, Guy is interested in what worked for growers and--just as important--what didn’t work. He is especially interested in grower experience in the humid eastern half of the U.S., but information from anywhere would be helpful.
If you are willing to talk to Guy and share your experiences and information, write him at email@example.com. Also, if you work with an organic growers’ group, please share this request with them, perhaps even through the group newsletter.
