In 2010, we forgot to keep the pumpkin row middles worked.

  • We had other jobs to do – I was busy spraying peaches, apples, and soybeans, while my dad was hauling fruit.

slide5

The Critical Temperature is the temperature that buds, flowers, or fruits will tolerate for 30 minutes or less.

  • Most of our damage is Post Bloom, small window between light and heavy damage.
slide7

  • In 2009, we spent $9,720 to have 4 helicopters fly over trees – and our gross income on peaches that year was $1.1 million.
slide9

  • This is a great example of how simple tools can be used to precisely manage a crop and greatly increase profits.
