Cherry Growers Gather for the 70th Annual Cherry Institute
Cherry growers from throughout the Northwest will gather at the Yakima Convention Center on Friday for the 70th annual Cherry Institute. James Michael, with Northwest Cherry Growers, says it is a day of education for growers. Growers learn the newest techniques and have a chance to talk with other farmers from throughout the region.
Michael says 2012 was a great year for growers who shipped some 23 million boxes of cherries all over the world. He says growers are looking for a better season this year.
The 70th annual Cherry Institute will be held Friday at the Yakima Convention Center.
