Fruit Tree and Berry Crop Trial
Aimed at finding sustainable ways to provide fresh foods to remote areas, this project finished its second season in 2009 with a successful harvest of apples planted in high tunnels designed to help plants withstand the cold climate. Data has been collected continuously since 2007 from the project site located at the University's Experiment Farm.

Soil quality is dependent upon many factors, and we can help you in determining the level of quality you are dealing with. Soil Testing Kits are available for free from your local CES office. Once you sample your soil, the analysis will be done through a third party lab for a fee. Visit our directory to identify the Extension office nearest you.
