Best Practices Session 4

Thursday, July 29, 2021

Vineyard development has been moving quite fast. The beginning of bloom was in the middle of June and currently it’s already possible to see bunches at almost bunch closure. Thanks to Jeff Franklin from AAFC Kentville (the last update is in the following link Weather update: temperature, precipitation and even hail!) you can see how the season has been moving in the last couple of weeks.

As the season keeps moving forward, I’m glad to announce that it’s time the Best Practices session 4.

At this opportunity, Dr. Deb Moreau will be presenting an update of observations through the season and how to manage caterpillars in grapes. Complementing this session, Jeff Franklin will be back with his updates on the weather conditions and the usual speakers will discuss the activities in the vineyard.

This session our agenda will be as follows:

  • Dr. Deb Moreau: Insect updates and managing caterpillars
  • Jeff Franklin: Weather update
  • Francisco Diez: Vineyard activities
  • Growers’ discussions: Steve Ells from Ellslea Farm and Marcel Kolb from Luckett Vineyards

The Best Practices session 4 will be next Thursday August 5 at 6:30 pm on Zoom. Registration is required, please see the following link:

Looking forward to meeting you at this session.
