Spring Freeze Damage Table

Hi All,
With this early (and getting earlier) spring, I’ve been fielding calls regarding fruit bud damage. If this week moves things along, it seems we’ll be in trouble. Getting through April (and May for that matter) without temps in the 20s, particularly in Northern Wisconsin, is asking a lot of mother nature.
I’ve attached a handy chart Mark Longstroth at MSU put together showing critical spring temperatures for a range of fruit crops.
