The National Peach Council sponsored a workshop for scientists working on dormancy and hardiness of peach and other fruit trees on March 2, 1977 during its National Convention. The purpose of the workshop was to exchange ideas and to develop new ones with the aim of developing better techniques for preventing winter and spring freeze injury.

The workshop, attended mainly by participants from the Eastern U.S., included sessions on breaking and/or prolonging dormancy, environmental and cultural control of hardiness, freeze control systems, and natural control of hardiness. The following is a brief report on material covered. A more detailed report and a list of participants may be obtained upon request.
