An Apple a Day

Cornell researchers discover truth in the adage, and are inventing new ways to keep your doctor away with apples. Other research examines how to develop, grow, and protect apples, whether new rootstock cultivars, IPM techniques, or devices to prevent deer damage. Know-how is transmitted to the public and commercial growers. New technologies are licensed to corporations for further development.
