Forrest Scharf’s Report on Cherry Research included:

-  Results of Cory Sheffield/s ADF study of wild bees and pollination.

-  Comparing plant growth and health to the availability of its scarcest essential nutrients (Liebig's law).
-  Jim Tansey, a new Provincial Entomologist, believes there may be a class of pathogens or viruses not noticed but causing poor production. 
-  In 2018, blind wood was common (leaves on the end of new branches but not at the basal ends).  A dry 2017 plus winter stress are likely factors affecting 2018. 

Forrest's 2019 research will include:

-  Repeating the Photo Selective Netting assessment.  2018 had many interfering variables.
-  Studying the impact on production of cutting down older fruit bushes, and
-  Assessing the impact of applying Apogee on plant growth and production.
