Field Day Coming Up. I'm Greg Martin with today's Fruit Grower Report.
Washington State University will be hosting their Viticulture & Enology Field Day in Prosser according to Grape Society Executive Director, Deb Heintz.
HEINTZ: We do it pretty much every year and it's an educational part of getting research and interesting topics out in front of our membership and anybody who grows grapes. They don't have to be a member.
The field day is slated for Thursday, August 12, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Roza Research Unit.
HEINTZ: The director for Viticulture & Enology will be there to welcome the attendees, and then Dr. Markus Keller will also be there going through the vineyard and talking about the research that has been taking place in the vineyard. They'll talk about things like what's the latest on the Concord side of things, cover crops, a tissue sampling demo and grape mealybug traps.
That is just the morning session.
HEINTZ: So then we pack up and move to the WSU headquarters and we're going to have a barbecue luncheon there. We'll have an introduction to WSU's grad students, Joan Davenport will be talking about foliar nitrogen sprays and a couple of other topics that will briefly be discussed.
No pre-registration is required. Registration on site begins at 8:45 a.m. and is $5 per person, payable with check or cash only. Groups of 5 or more should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
