Wednesday, June 15, 2022

As every week, Jeff Franklin from AAFC Kentville is bringing the weather update, with positive news in terms of temperature for the last week. Like previous weeks, plants are growing in a good rate, especially the ones with earlier bud burst and on locations with warmer conditions. Hybrids, such as Lucie Kuhlmann, Frontenac, Geisenheim or L’Acadie blanc have been growing steadily, currently in shoot thinning process and even tucking the shoots. Meanwhile vinifera varieties, the early ones are in shoot thinning process as well and others slightly behind depending on their location.
