We'll hear talks about the NYNGA English Walnut Project; highlights of the NAFEX/NNGA fruit and nut conference in Georgia; a comparison of the two species of commercial chestnuts grown in the US; the use of Cilus Plus, a product that is based on a phosphate solubalizing bacterium that promotes plant growth; and the constituents of soil for nut growing. After a brief business meeting and lunch we will tour the chestnut and hazelnut plantings of Mr. Russell.
