Title: Tree-raising on the fruit farm- an essay on management
Authors: Cummins, James
Keywords: fruit farm management
Issue Date: Jun-1972
Publisher: New York Agricultural Experiment Station
Series/Report no.: New York's Food and Life Sciences Bulletin
Abstract: "Should I raise the trees myself to replant the North Hill block, or should I borrow the money to buy trees from the nursery?" Many commercial apple growers are asking themselves questions of this sort as they are faced with the large cash investments required for high density plantings. This essay is designed to aid the orchardist in objectively answering such questions. Consideration will be given to some of the tactics of using the nurseryman's skills, to the economics of raising trees on the fruit farm, and to the management factors leading to the final decision on tree purchase or tree raising.
