Feb 3, 2021Workshop set on building better spray programs for vineyards in the Midwest
Are you are a Midwest grape grower and want to feel more confident about fungicide spray program design? Join us March 2 or 4, for a virtual workshop on building better spray programs for vineyards in the Midwest.
Fungicide resistance to powdery and downy mildews is a growing concern for Midwest grape producers. Developing spray programs that focus not only on disease management but also fungicide resistance mitigation can be challenging. This workshop is designed to assist crop consultants, vineyard managers or anyone who writes or recommends fungicide programs with developing a fungicide spray program for wine or table grapes.
The workshop will run from 1-4:30 p.m. EST. Information presented will be the same at both workshops, so you only need to register for one. Click on the links below to register and for more information.
Registration will be limited to 30 people per day and closes Feb. 5. So don’t wait, sign up today!
This workshop is brought to you by the FRAME (Fungicide Resistance Assessment, Mitigation and Extension) Network co-hosted with the University of Minnesota, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Michigan State University. The goal of this USDA funded program is to develop tools that can be applied to face fungicide resistance challenges.
