Announcements

Virtual Coffee Pot Meetings every Wednesday

We are excited to offer Virtual Coffee Pot Meeting for NY and PA Pesticide Recertification Credits.

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture approved our Coffee Pot Meeting virtually (online) and, with some modifications. We have been approved to offer one NY and one PA credit for each Coffee Pot Meeting. That is 13 opportunities to receive pesticide recertification credits in 2020!

We will discuss timely viticulture, business management, and integrated pest management. We are also setting up special guest speakers in viticulture and enology from all over the country since traveling isn't an issue with the virtual platforms. We are excited to be able to continue to offer recertification credits for our growers and sad that it will not be in person or with coffee and doughnuts. 

Join us Wednesdays May through July, 2020 10:00 AM Eastern Time. Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.


Loaner Sensor Program

The loaner sensor program is an outreach program designed to introduce interested growers to the technology developed by the Efficient Vineyard researchers. It involves a technician from the Lake Erie Regional Grape Program coming out to the farm to install or attach scanners and computers to existing equipment. The subsequent data collection is then completed during normal activity such as pesticide spraying. Once the data is collected it can be sent back to researchers to generate a prescription map. The DualEM soil sensor requires a technician to operate so if you would like to have a soil scan done of your vineyard, please contact the Portland, NY Cornell Extension office and make an appointment.
