Vineyard Management Workshop – Trunk Disease and their Management

Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018 - Registration: 8:30 a.m

James Arthur Vineyards, 2001 W. Raymond Road, Raymond Nebraska

COST: $20, payable at the door, includes lunch and hand-outs

We have had the opportunity to acquire significant and in-depth data on trunk disease symptoms in nearly 30 grapevine cultivars (“varieties”). These results will be the focus of the viticulture workshop at James Arthur Vineyards. University of Nebraska Viticulture Program research will be featured, along with observations and published information shared with the UNVP personnel by Richard Smart (“the Flying Vine Doctor”) earlier this year.  We also will provide inputs from University of Nebraska Plant Pathology diagnostic personnel regarding Botryosphaeria and Eutypa, their characteristics and management.  Examples of various stages of trunk diseases will be available for participants to inspect.

In addition to the focus on trunk diseases, attendees will gain insights and advice regarding Post-Harvest Vineyard Management, including disease and insect management, vineyard clean-up and practices that will make your vineyard ready for winter and the next year’s vintage.

Please contact Paul Read (pread@unl.edu, 402-472-5136 or Steve Gamet sgamet@unl.edu if planning to attend to assist with planning for lunches.
