VIRTUAL LIVE WEBINAR Addressing Climate Change Challenges through Vineyard Management Strategies
March 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Climate change and dynamic weather patterns challenge management in agricultural production systems; what “worked” during one season may not be as effective in another season if weather patterns differ. In vineyards, productivity and quality potential are threatened by weather patterns that can result in early bud break, kill primary grapevine buds, perturb growth and vigor, amplify disease prevalence, and/or limit grape and wine quality potential, to name a few. During this session, weather patterns will be reviewed across several growing regions, new and updated crop insurance options for commercial grape growers will be reviewed, and grower panelists will review their approaches to dealing with climate change and/or mitigating climate change through vineyard management strategies.
Eastern Viticulture and Enology Forum Series” (EVEF) is a collaborative effort between the Penn State Extension Grape and Wine Team and several viticulture and enology Extension programs from the following U.S. land grant institutions: Colorado State University, Cornell University, University of Georgia, Iowa State University, University of Maryland, Ohio State University, and Rutgers University. As part of the Eastern Viticulture and Enology Forum Webinar Series, this session is a collaborative effort between these viticulture and enology extension programs coordinated for grape growers and winemakers.
