Moran cited in Mainebiz article on state’s apple crop

Renae Moran, a tree fruit specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, was cited in a Mainebiz article about the state’s apple crop. According to the New England Apple Association, citing the U.S. Apple Association’s official 2017 forecast, Maine apple growers anticipate a crop of 1,024,000 boxes — or 43,008,000 pounds, based on 42 pounds per box average — an increase of 22 percent from a year ago. Moran said the association’s forecast for Maine and New England sounds about right, based on her conversations with growers in the state.
