Final reports on understanding decline on select apple scion-rootstock combinations, hot air impingement drying for fruit surface decontamination, risk assessment for delayed sunscald and light/water optimization for orchards covered with netting will be presented.

Day two will highlight continuing reports on optimizing sterile insect release for codling moth management, understanding the epidemiology of grey mold (Botrytis spp.) and integrated fire blight management. Final reports on results on airblast spray drift exposure levels, fire blight control both non-antibiotic and SAR, brown marmorated stink bug control are some of the highlighted research reports covered in the afternoon session that day.
