New website helps peach growers

Peach growers now have 24-hour access to information through a website created by Clemson fruit scientist Desmond Layne with support from the S.C. Peach Council.

“Growers can search the database for performance evaluations on 300 varieties of peaches and nectarines, and use the data to make management decisions for future planting,” said Layne.

The site also includes information on nursery suppliers, orchard culture and management, and plant protection from diseases and pests. It links to the online Southeastern Peach Grower’s Handbook and the Southeast Regional Peach Newsletter, as well as to Layne’s articles in trade publications.
