You can order hard copies of some articles on butternut from the Northern Nut
Growers Association at http://www.icserv.com/nnga/btwalnut.htm. Most of the
articles are from NNGA annual reports. If you're near Cornell, Arnold
Arboretum, Carey Arboretum, or the CT Ag Experiment Station, they have
subscriptions to the annual reports. Most major university libraries have
subscriptions too (not UMass, however).
