Cold Acclimation & Recovery from Spring Frost in Grapes webinar

The Northern Grapes Project Webinar Series

“The Big Chill: Cold Acclimation and Recovery from Spring Frost in Grapes in New York” 

Tim Martinson, Cornell University
Jason Londo

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015
12:00 Noon Eastern (11:00 am Central)
7:00 pm Eastern (6:00 pm Central)

Cold-hardy grapes are grown in climates where spring frost often occur, and where tolerance to mid-winter cold is necessary; the reasons why grapes are more or less cold hardy are determined by both variety and weather.  In this webinar, Tim Martinson will talk about recovery from both winter cold (during the winter 2013-2014) and spring frost (spring 2015) in Marquette and Frontenac.  Jason Londo will review some of what we know about the processes of acclimation, dormancy, and deacclimation, as well as some of the challenges we have in a future of climate variability.
