Assess Your Freeze Damage

Assess Your Freeze Damage with a MyEV data Collector- By Terry Bates

Freeze damage across eastern U.S. vineyards was highly variable this week depending on the stage of bud development, air temperatures, and vineyard location. Assessing bud damage over the next two weeks will help growers determine the size and variation in crop potential, adjust management practices, and record damage for crop insurance. In this video, Terry Bates shows you how to set up and use a MyEV data collector and a smartphone to collect and map freeze damage observations in your vineyard.
