Moran discusses apple growing struggles with Sun Journal
Renae Moran, professor of pomology with the University of Maine School of Food and Agriculture and fruit tree specialist with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with the Sun Journal about apple yield in Maine, which was down about 50% from historical averages this year. “Apple growers are always optimistic,” she said. “They’ve got their crop already planted. With this one bad year, they’re willing to just move on and start thinking about next year’s crop.” The Portland Press Herald and CentralMaine.com shared the Sun Journal story.
