Growing South Carolina's Peach Industry

South Carolina grows more than 50 varieties of peaches and ranks second in fresh peach production in the United States behind California. The peach industry is a major contributor to South Carolina's economy.

To help keep the industry growing, the Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service Peach Team is researching how to keep pests at bay, as well as how using new technologies can help protect peaches.
