The MSU Grape School will be held in Traverse City and Benton Harbor during 2 days in late March, organized by the Michigan State University Grape Team. Grape growers can explore ways to improve vineyard management, though in-depth training in pest and disease control, and greater understanding of grapevine physiology, and discussion of extreme climate and how to respond.
The event will be held at the NWMHRC and SWMREC on March 28-29, 2019; the two locations will be connected via teleconference. This two day program will explore fundamental aspects of grape growing and vineyard pest and diseases with experts from MSU, California, Italy and our local industry. Included in the program will be visits to local vineyards and wineries.
Registration is $70 per person, which includes lunch on Thursday (March 28), light breakfast and lunch on Friday (March 29), course materials, and 2 extension books (A Pocket Guide for Grape IPM Scouting of Grapes and Winter Injuries to Grapevines and Methods of Protection). Dinner is on your own and lodging is separate.
