Join us for a discussion of the merits and risks of own-rooted vinifera. There will be a demonstration of collecting, storing and using hardwood cuttings. We will also discuss layering, creating own-rooted vines in the nursery, retraining winter-injured vines and other relevant and practical topics.
Both experienced and new grape growers are encouraged to attend, and bring questions and production issues for your fellow growers, MSU researchers and crop consultants.
