Research Review

The 2024 Northwest Cherry and Stone Fruit Research Review will be held November 7, 2023 from 8:30am – 4:30pm, at the Yakima Valley College Conference Center, Room C; 1704 W. Nob Hill Blvd, Yakima, WA with a social hour immediately following.

This hybrid event jointly sponsored by the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission and the Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission will feature continuing and final research project reports on Little Cherry Disease, Spotted Wing Drosophila, Horticulture, Breeding, Mildew and more. We will be offering 4 WSDA and 3 ODA pesticide recertification credits to those who attend the entire event.
