[NAFEX] Nebraska Aronia

Tue Jan 2 13:38:30 EST 2007


The University of Nebraska Extension was a co-sponsor of the Aronia (chokeberry) presentation I mentioned previously, which was done by Dr. Everhart last fall.  They have terrific handouts/information regarding Aronia (chokeberry).  If you haven't tried, maybe the Univ of Ne's Backyard Farmer site might have info on Aronia.  (And for everybody else, the Univ of Nebraska produces a program called Backyard Farmer which is a tremendous resource.  They say it's the oldest continuous show on TV.  Google Backyard Farmer for links.)  I think you can access Dr Everhart by going through the Iowa State University Extension site.  I hesitate to put his email up here without his OK.  He is very knowledgeable regarding Aronia husbandry.  Breeding/site selection/habits/propagation/commercial uses, etc.  He's encouraging Aronia cultivation as a commercial crop in SW Iowa - where the climate is anything but soggy, and often is very harsh temp and wind wise.  

Hope it helps.  We're trying some this spring here at Oak Dale Farm.
