The 2012 Washington State University Cherry Field Day is planned June 4 starting with a noon barbecue lunch in the picnic area at the WSU Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Prosser.
The field day is open to the public and will include a tour of the WSU Roza experimental orchards.
Topics of discussion will include Washington-Oregon cherry breeding program updates, plantings and training systems, observations from the Michigan State University rootstock trial, a demonstration of shake-and-catch harvest technology, a solid-set-canopy delivery system demonstration and a demonstration of a labor monitoring system.
The afternoon will conclude with a visit to two or three local orchards.
