Apple-Crop E-mail Discussion Group

List Founders Win Cowgill, JoeCostante, Jon Clements

The apple-crop electronic mail group was formed to allow pomologists to better communicate on all aspects of apple production, marketing and related topics. Subscribing to this list is free and is a privilege. The goal of this discussion group is to provide a forum which will foster the exchange of information between University researchers, Extension agents and specialists, students, commercial apple growers, wholesalers/brokers, retailers and direct marketers of apples.

The apple-crop discussion forum has the potential to strengthen communications between commercial producers of apples and the scientific and education community. Discussion relating to all aspects of apple production from cultivar selection, tree growth and performance, rootstock development and testing to the development of sustainable production systems is welcome. Research briefs and abstracts are also welcome along with new technology developments. News articles are invited, particularly local items from your region

Apple-crop now hosts over 350 participants from apple producing regions all over the world. On-line discussion happens in spurts when a topic of interest is posted. Your input is always welcome. We have been pleased with the activity on apple-crop but any communications tool is only as good as we make it.
