Convened by Dr. Stefano Musacchi, WSU hosted the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) XII Orchard Systems Symposium in July 2021. The symposium was virtual so Stefano and TJ Mullinax from the Good Fruit Grower filmed orchard visits where Stefano and producers provided industry overviews and discussed orchard systems and production strategies.
In the apple video, Suzanne Bishop, Dave Gleason, Mike VanPelt, and Dale Goldy host orchard stops. The cherry video is a tour of several blocks with Cherry King, Kyle Mathison. Bob Gix, Rudy Prey, and Ray Schmitten are the hosts on the pear tour. Ines Hanrahan provides an industry overview on the apple and cherry tours, Bob Gix does the same on the pear tour.
Thank you to all the hosts. The videos were produced by the Good Fruit Grower Magazine.
