Kari, Greg, Rob, and Don discuss mole and vole control, insect control during late Fall/Winter (including an update on Lorsban (chlorpyrifos)), and some fungicidal techniques to improve the orchard before next season.
Greg also requests grower feedback about worm (codling moth/oriental fruit moth) problems in their orchards. The lead image photo is the strange Pink Lady that’s discussed in the middle of the episode.
