We have develped our very own “apple help desk” thru the years. Some of the key players in this are discussed below and we appreciate the expertise and support they have provided and continue to provide.

Willis Orchards is a great provider of high quality fruit trees. And they were most helpful in the process of selecting the varieties we have today. (www.willisorchards.com)

In addition, our county extension educator was a great help in identifying issues impacting the health of our trees including airflow, sunlight, soil fertility and moisture.

And to be sure, the scientists at SureTech Laboratories in Indianapolis who process our soil and tissue sample tests annually include knowledgeable folks who help us optimize fertilizer and spray programs.
