Monthly R&D Series - Third Thursdays!
A great opportunity for industry to get involved with the BCWGC R&D Committee, meet the researchers and bring your questions to the table. These monthly R&D series are for industry to participate in an informal virtual discussion on research priorities that support BC enology and viticulture.
Join us via Zoom from 9:00 - 10:00:
Dr. Markus Keller, Washington State University – Cold Hardiness and dealing with winter damage
WSU monitors weather patterns and lethal temperatures of different grape varieties throughout each winter to help inform growers on what frost protection and damage mitigation measures should be initiated, including pruning adjustments and other vineyard management practices. Dr. Keller will discuss the impacts of cold damage on grapevines and how to help the vines recover from damage.
