US: Uncommon fruit website introduced

The Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems (CIAS) worked with Dale Secher of Carandale Farm to create a website detailing Secher's 10 years of on-farm research on uncommon fruit crops. Secher shares his observations and knowledge of using fruits such as aronia, currants, Saskatoon, and jostaberries in an integrated cropping system that is economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable. Most of the information provided on this website is based on experiences and observations, supplemented by other literature. Each fruit is identified by its scientific and common names followed by a brief summary of cultural information, economic considerations and its potential ecological benefit in an integrated cropping system. This is followed by more detailed information about history, background, observations in the test plot, and a general discussion.
