Science In Our Valley: Modifying Tree Transpiration
October 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us every Wednesday for our seminar series featuring research happening right here in North Central Washington! Science In Our Valley began a few years ago to catalyze the development of an engaged regional scientific community.
On October 16, Raquel Gomez will present her research “Modifying tree transpiration and nutrient mobility to control bitter pit incidence in apples”. Bitter pit incidence is caused by a localized calcium deficiency with apple fruits, however increasing calcium content in the fruit can be challenging. In my research we explore the way plants distribute nutrients when transpiration is limited to control bitter pit incidence in ‘Honeycrisp’ apples.
This is a free event, open to the community and great opportunity to learn about the incredible research in our own backyard.
