Black Currant Agronomy Panel
April 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Black currants are a nutritious berry crop gaining interest among health-conscience consumers and farmers seeking to diversify their operations alike. Eric Wolske has led research at the University of Illinois on currant cultivar performance and best practices for growing currants in orchards, agroforestry systems, and even in parks and yards. Moderated by Bill Davison, Eric will go over some of the exciting components of his research on currants and share some of the lessons he’s learned to help future and current currant growers maximize production of this delicious and nutritious up-and-coming fruit.
