Field day is free! (Bring your own pruning shears and coffee; free doughnuts while supplies last!)

Pruning advice for beginners will be provided at this half-day field day at the University of Nebraska Viticulture Program’s East Campus plantings. Although this field day is intended to assist new growers and would-be grape growers, it may serve as a refresher for growers with various levels of experience. It also should be helpful to people with home grape plantings.  University of Nebraska Viticulture Program staff will be on hand for advice and demonstrations.
