Are you looking for funding to support your American chestnut research? External grants offer recipients a variety of benefits such as professional development and an expanded network. Grant activities contribute to the continuous renewal and development of faculty and staff, to the education and motivation of students, and achievement of our mutual interest — restoration of the American chestnut. This is a small grants program. TACF does not ordinarily fund projects in excess of $10,000. Visit the link to learn more or submit your proposal. tacf.org/external-grants/ ... See MoreSee Less

Are you ready for this week's Meadowview Research Farms takeover? Let's see if you find the FUNgicide as fun as they do!
______________
Last week, Meadowview Research Farms proceeded with an ongoing experiment involving the application of different fungicides to chestnut trees. The research focuses on determining the efficacy of available fungicides for American chestnut trees in fighting blight. Based on resources available from Michigan State University for commercial chestnut orchard management, we are comparing a variety of products and evaluating their impacts over several seasons. Different applications include Basal Bark, Foliar Spraying, and Soil Drip. Remember to always check the EPA labels of any fungicide you use for proper personal protective equipment and procedures.
