Cold Hardiness and Climate Change Webinar

Cold weather remains an ongoing challenge for the grape and wine industry across Canada. While climate change is predicted to expand areas suitable for wine grape production in the country, more frequent extreme cold weather events through the year, including cold episodes lethal to grapevines are also predicted. Activities 5, 6 & 7 in the Canadian Agricultural Partnership will explore methods to  reduce crop loss risks by increasing vineyard tolerance to extreme cold events through enhanced hardiness, crop protection technologies and improved cultivar selection. 

For the first cluster research update webinar, centered around the theme of 'Cold Hardiness and Climate Change', we welcome Dr. Harrison Wright of AAFC Kentville, Dr. Jim Willwerth of Brock University's Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI), and Ph.D. candidate Andréanne Hébert-Haché of Centre de recherche agroalimentaire de Mirabel (CRAM) to give presentations on their respective cluster research projects. Join us to learn about the progress on these research projects and see how the cluster is working to benefit our national grape and wine industry!

The webinar is free but registration is required.
