Janet participates in all aspects of the horticultural management of cherry and pear trials. Her duties also include collecting and organizing data generated by the various projects in the Horticulture program.

Prior to Dr. Einhorn’s arrival, she managed the pear cultivar, rootstock, and training system trials.   Work in these projects will continue, with an emphasis on supporting the development of the applied research program being initiated by Dr. Einhorn.
