Abstract: Our goal is to develop content for the Cornell Fruit Resources webpage to increase extension information delivery to key audiences in New York State, specifically the grape and tree fruit industries.

Objectives:

1) Organize electronic resources for fruit growers into a format that is user-friendly and consistent across commodities (tree fruit, grapes, berries).

2) Develop information for new vineyard growers, organize enology resources, reorganize current viticulture and enology information and produce content for a comprehensive grape resources component of the fruit website.

3) Develop content related to cultural practices, soil health and fertility, cultivars and rootstocks, IPM, organic production, business management and marketing, and reorganize current content, to obtain a comprehensive tree fruit resources component of the fruit website.
