YGA members gathered for a special specialty crop automation session as part of the Penn State FREC Field Day. New innnovations in agriculture were featured, such as mechanical blossom & fruit thinners, novel bin fillers, spray patternators, specialized herbicide applicators, and even orchard robotics!

Participants learned about recent research and applications to their tree fruit operations. Todd Hultquist and Mark Seetin of U.S. Apple Association also met the young growers and shared ideas about promoting tree fruit products to the public.
