Crop Conditions – Facts for Fancy Fruit

Crop Conditions

At the Meigs Horticultural facility, we have been busy completing cover sprays and with crop maintenance. The total rainfall at Meigs this June has totaled a half inch. We need rain to help with fruit development. As a result of very little rainfall, we’ve had very little disease pressure. The last harvest of our Strawberries was this previous week. Our Black Currants and Red Raspberries are the first to start ripening in our small fruit patch.
