Upcoming Events

NDVI Sensor Scan

July 10 - August 26, 2014

Vine size plays an essential role in maximizing vineyard efficiency. Mapping a relative approximation of vine size offers the potential of improved average vine size through decreased variability.With NDVI research in its 5th year, we're confident with a little help from you we can make this technology commercially viable. Moving beyond block management and managing vine size within blocks can improve sampling, identify and quantify viticultural challenges, and even change management strategies. The first step is familiarizing yourself with your blocks and the identifying long-term vine size patterns. Please register for this event, we can provide the technology to do just that.

Lake Erie Grapes in the News

The recent below zero temperatures we have across the Lake Erie grape belt has brought a renewed interest to grape production in the area, especially the impact on the cold sensitive wine varieties. Use the station links below to see the LERGP's Luke Haggerty discussing the cold temperatures effects on bud mortality across the region with reporters from Channel 4 and Channel 7 in Buffalo, NY.
