FREE! Bring your secateurs (French for hand pruning shears) and lots of questions. This will be a great hands-on opportunity to learn how to deal with vexing issues such as winter injury and grapevine trunk diseases, in addition to a chance to review pruning for optimal yields.

SchillingBridge Winery & Microbrewery have graciously agreed to host a field experience for any interested growers and would-be grape growers. The topics and hands-on opportunities will include Pruning for Winter Injury Recovery, Grapevine Trunk Diseases: How to Recognize Them and Follow-up Steps, Pruning for Optimal Crop Yield, Early Season Vineyard Management Practices, and related topics.

Topics will be led by the University of Nebraska Viticulture Program (UNVP) specialists and Max Hoffman, SchillingBridge Vineyard Manager and amateur grape breeder. This will be a great way to jump-start the 2019 growing season, so plan to attend, get your questions answered, and gain additional practice in pruning and vineyard management.
