A word on thinning

With many orchards suffering severe frost damage last year, our expectation is for very heavy flowering this spring. We’ll talk more about thinning next time, but it’s a pretty safe prediction that flowering will be heavy and so growers will really need to have their act together regarding thinning. So make sure now that your spraying equipment is in good shape and ready to go, and that you have thinning materials on hand. It’s still too early to predict what this spring has in store for us, but now is the time to get prepared.
