Dr. Terence Robinson, a professor and Applied Fruit Crop Physiologist from Cornell University Cooperative Extension in Geneva, NY presents at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Henderson County 2013 Winter Apple School, a new method for planting, growing and maintaining an apple orchard.

Implementation of this Tall Spindle Apple Orchard System promises to reduce labor costs and to increase yields and fruit quality. We also follow Dr. Robinson to a local apple orchard in Henderson County so he can demonstrate the techniques he discusses in his presentation.
