Poor Crops

Post by SOME IDIOT »

I was just wondering if anyone else was having poor crops this year. I have had dreadful crops for all my Apple, Cherry and Peach trees. I have also heard the same from a few other people in NY.

Sorry to hear that.

On the west coast we had a pretty normal crop of apples & pears, and a bumper crop of plums.

How about winter bud kill. Only had 20 varieties produce fruit last year as compared to 60 the year before. I am located in Ontario Canada. What about lack of bees? Neonics are killing most of the wild bees and my honey bees. But the first problem is with lack of buds. It was too cold, too long.
