As I indicated at the VVA meeting, we are planning to have three IPM workshops this year. The dates ended up earlier than what I proposed, but with given warm weather, it may work out just fine... 5 March 2012 at Linden Vineyards 6 March 2012 at King Family Vineyards 19 March 2012 at Loudoun County Fairgrounds. We will quickly go over the basic of IPM, and spend most of our time to go over a season to aid you build a template for your spray schedule. We also reserve a time to discuss about the sustainable viticulture workshop. If you are interested in, please RSVP with Tremain Hatch at Thatch@vt.edu , 540.869.2560 ext. 11, since there are limited seating availabilities. It will be a full day workshop (9:30AM-4PM), so, please bring your lunch. Also, I prepared a handout for the pruning workshop held at AHS AREC last week. It covers disease management consideration at pruning time. If you are interested in, please click here to download a copy.
