Central VA vineyard meeting at Lovingston tomorrow

A vineyard meeting will be held at Nelson extension center (just south of Food Lion on Thomas nelson Highway (Hwy 29)) at Lovingston from 11 am. I'll be talking about the same early season disease management information I presented at the previous meeting.

The temperature in the morning did not go down enough to cause damage on our vines. I hope your vines are OK as well. These two nights are too cold for disease development.

Our Chardonnay was ~90% 7~8 leaves unfolded (I have not observed rachis elongation yet), and Cabernet sauvignon was about 8-90 % 7~8 leaves unfolded. I'll probably apply pre-bloom applications in the near future.
