Cosmic CrispTM Pruning Demos – WSU SRO & Roza
December 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - December 14, 2017 @ 3:00 pmFree
Dr. Stefano Musacchi will conduct pruning demonstrations at both the WSU Sunrise block in Rock Island and the WSU Roza block in Prosser. WSU Sunrise demonstrations will be held Wednesday, Dec 13 and WSU Roza demonstrations will be held Thursday, Dec 14. Demonstration trees are in their 5th leaf and trained to bi-axis, vertical spindle and angled spindle.
To increase participant interaction, we have scheduled four 1-hour demonstrations at each location. We have received feedback about how difficult it is to participate in the WA 38 field days when 100+ people are trying to get close enough to see and engage in the discussion. To that end, we are going to try to stagger the crowds by repeating the demonstration throughout the day and requesting that people select a date and time and RSVP on an online reservation system. We need to develop a system that works so please go to the link and make your reservation. We hope this results in a more valuable educational experience for all.
