Hi there, I'm a Eugene home garden fruit grower (figs, apples, pears, berries, Asian pears, etc) hoping to establish a rolling database of apple tree care based on what we're seeing on our trees. I'd like to have a calendar we can scroll though to see previous year's budding dates, petal fall, insect problems, etc. I know our neighborhoods can be dramatically different in terms of season shifts, but it would be great if we could monitor how the seasons are changing. I don't want to spray chemicals, but keeping closer tabs on neighborhood fruit tree trends would help me with other modes of controlling awful coddling moth and apple maggot. Suggestions appreciated. Does such a thing already exist? I suggested it to the extension service...

Hello Teresa,

Welcome to the HOS forum.  I would check out the Agrarian Sharing Network on Facebook. They are a eugene based group that works with such things.

You may have some interest in the computer modeling for pests and disease based on degree day, extrapolating out to when to treat or put out bait stations for greatest effect. Don’t recall whom I overheard discussing originally, but seems likely to assist getting a handle on what you are looking to. It’s from the Oregon IPM Center at OSU.
