About Us

The UMass Fruit Adivsor's mission is to assist fruit growers with all aspects of horticultural and pest management. It is a cooperative program of the research and extension efforts of the Department of Plant, Soil, & Insect Sciences in the College of Natural Sciences at the University of Massachusetts. Ten individuals cooperate to form the UMass Fruit Program, a part of UMass Extension's Agriculure & Landscape Program.

This site includes all of our written publications, including Healthy Fruit, Berry Notes, Fruit Notes, New England Apple Pest Management Guide, New England Small Fruit Pest Management Guide, and all factsheets. Subscribers gain access to this information immediately. Otherwise, it will be made available after a period of time.

Feel free to contact members of the team to discuss specific issues. Contact information is provided by clicking the "CONTACT" button at the top, right-hand corner of every page. If you have a problem and you do not know who to ask, please contact Wes Autio, Program Leader.

If you have difficulties with the site or the information contained within it, please contact Wes Autio.
