April 12th Northern Grapes Project Webinar Announcement and Registration

The Northern Grapes Project Webinar Series

“Northern Grapes Project Research Results: Fungicide Sensitivity and Vine Nutrition of Cold-Hardy Cultivars”


Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

12:00 Noon Eastern (11:00 am Central)

7:00 pm Eastern (6:00 pm Central)

Join Patricia McManus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Carl Rosen of the University of Minnesota as they discuss results of their Northern Grapes Project research. Patty’s presentation will summarize four years of field trials that focused on determining the sensitivity of popular cold-hardy cultivars to fungicides, including copper, sulfur, and difenoconazole. Carl’s presentation will summarize three years of research on tissue analysis of cold hardy grapes grown in 16 locations spanning five states. Nutrient diagnostic criteria will be presented for petiole, blade, and whole leaves collected at bloom and veraison and relationships between soil properties/tissue nutrient concentrations and grape juice quality will be discussed.
