Who We Are
The Maryland State Horticultural Society is a group of commercial fruit growers who face many different production issues. Their mission is to fund research on fruit production, insect, disease, and provide educational programing to the Maryland producer.
Research and Programs
The Maryland State Horticultural Society uses the membership dues to provide grants for research projects that are designed to improve producer profitability and it supports several educational programs (Western Maryland Regional Fruit Meeting, WMREC Twilight Meeting, Summer Tour) for the Maryland grower.
