Agriculture has always been about adaptation: tweaking practices, nurturing ideal conditions against the year’s odds, and honing in on cultivars that can be coaxed into thriving for a predictable harvest. It’s practicing equal parts ‘planning with foresight’ and ‘embracing what comes’ – and 2021’s cherry season certainly required the stamina and resilience that draws from both elements.

Harvesting for the fresh produce market demands conscientious, strategic attention to quality metrics that determine the worth of a season. Done right, and the maximized return is clear for all parties in the supply chain. Gathering key data insights at the orchard or on receipt at the packinghouse boosts the efficiency of the steps that follow: pack or store, then ship.

Apples are susceptible to each throughout the season, but particularly during the bloom stage. Research continues on how to best prevent, scout, and treat disease and pests – and best practice strategies are helping growers execute on successful seasons against the odds.
