Moran Talks to WVII about Apple Crop

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Renae Moran, a tree fruit specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with WVII (Channel 7) about this year’s apple crop. Moran said southern Maine is having an above average year due to the good weather conditions during pollination when trees were in bloom. She said a week later trees in northern Maine came into bloom when there was a long period of rainy, cold weather.
