Seasonal Vineyard and Pest Management Conference
March 19 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This workshop will cover effective seasonal vine, disease, insect, and weed management strategies, with the goal of helping attendees prepare their chemical inventories and labor schedules as the season gets underway. The vineyard management poster, which many already have in their possession, will serve as a sound reference for knowing when specific diseases, insects, and vineyard practices should be managed, scouted for, and/or implemented (as based off vine growth stage).
