One is at Koru farm in Stuart, VA (Sept. 30th - TOMORROW!). Caryl and Greg Talcott has been kind enough to host and organize the meeting. If you can make it, please do. I will talk about new fungicide and other management information.
The other one is at Dinwiddie, VA (Oct 1st). Although this is titled late season meeting, I will talk mainly about "early" season disease management for next season, since most of people are probably either harvested, or harvesting their grapes.
The list of speakers (at Dinwiddie):
Dr. Mizuho Nita, VCE Grape Pathologist from
Dr. Paul Semtner, VCE Entomologist form
Janet Spencer, VCE SE Area Vegetable Extension Agent in
Mike Parrish, VCE Extension Agent,
This program will cover information for Both Backyard and Commercial Production.
Directions from Blackstone will be to fallow 460E about 18 miles to Courthouse Rd. Turn Right on Courthouse Rd. and go about ½ mile to Davis Road and turn right. The Coburn’s will be about a ½ on the Right. The Coburns grow 10 different verities of grapes and sells them to Wine Making Hobbyist.
Note: I tried to upload my notes, but VT's server is having an issue. I will do it next week.
