Question:
We have an apple tree and every year before the apples are ripe they fall off the tree. We thought it might be a nutrient deficiency. I hope that you can help us with our problem.


Replies:
Possibly helpful, and/or consult with your local agricultural extension.

There are many resources about raising apples. These web sites from Illinois and Ohio may be good places to start. There may be a local extension or other service in your area that can help.
