O'Bryan, Robert C.; Iverson, Maynard J.
Designed as a guide for teachers in planning and conducting young and adult farmer classes, the unit covers the basic areas of tree-fruit production. The format of the 10-lesson unit allows for the utilization of the problem-solving and discussion methods of teaching. The major objective of the unit is to develop the ability to effectively establish and manage a tree-fruit production enterprise. Topics of study include: orchard site selection, establishing and propagating fruit trees, pruning, soil management, thinning trees, insect and disease control, harvesting and marketing, and managing home fruit production. The appendix includes teaching forms and a unit evaluation questionnaire. (NJ)
