Season 2022: Weather update, bloom and tissue sampling

Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Jeff Franklin, from AAFC Kentville, is untiringly bringing weekly updates to understand how the growing season changes and comparing with previous ones. Last week, like the last couple of weeks, brought an important amount of rain, filling the soils of water and leaving a good moisture for grapevines. Mentioned in the previous publication, hybrids, such as Baco noir or Frontenac started bloom last week, while others, like Geisenheim or L’Acadie blanc were slightly behind, which might depend on the vineyard location. On the other hand, vinifera varieties are behind hybrids, which is normal for these varieties in our province.
