Today we were doing a farm inspection and decided to do an update on the new apple growing system experiment. In this new system we are using a root stock that was developed by Cornell University. This new system allows for the trees to be planted 3 ft apart instead of 20 ft apart in a traditional growing system. We are hoping that this system really works, and within the next few years to transition the entire apple orchard into this new system.
Farmer Dre goes into detail about benefits of the new system in the video below. Enjoy!
