Drs. Angela Myracle and Renae Moran have been awarded a state (Agricultural Development Grant. ). Their project “Increasing Local Plum Production for Farm Market Diversification” aims to identify cold hardy varieties of plums that are well accepted by consumers to help Maine growers increase plum production in the state and to aid in diversifying tree fruit production.
