How are our peaches being grown this year (2012)?
The orchard we get peaches from always strives to spray as little as possible. If they can avoid it, they do. But they’ll spray the orchard before they’ll loose the crop. So we emailed the grower to ask “have you had to spray much or little this year?”
His answer: Very little.
I’ve pasted the grower’s response here: “Very similar to last year. We’ve had 7/8″ of rain in 2 months. Dry, dry, dry = minimal to no spraying.”
