Mar 5, 2015SWMREC to host spring grape kick-off meeting
Berrien County MSU Extension in 2015 will be hosting several in-season Integrated Pest Management meetings for all grape growers.
The first of these grape meetings, the Spring Kick-off Meeting, will start at 2 p.m. March 24 at the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center. Presentations will include: Tom Zabadal on rebuilding winter-injured vineyards, Rufus Isaacs on early season IPM and Annemiek Schilder on early season disease management, including dormant sprays. Discussion will follow each speaker, so growers are encouraged to bring questions. Dinner will be served after the educational presentations, at 4:30.
