Frost protection in the Vineyard

Friday, June 3, 2016

Hi folks,

It's that time of year again, it feels like summer is here but... we've had a few frost warnings in some parts of the province this week.  'They' say that the safe frost free date is after the full moon in June, which isn't until June 20th!  Let's hope we don't see frost that late - but I thought it might be a good time to post a few links about preventing frost injury in the vineyard.  And with high interest in new plantings across the province - it has some great information for new growers on vineyard location to avoid frost pockets as well!

The first article is from Texas extension - click here

The midwest wine press has a great round up of articles on a number of frost preventative strategies and theories- you can check them out here.

Hope your days are warm and your nights are frost free!
