The Smart Decision of Using Clean Plant Material
Grapegrowing Session in Spanish
This Track is based on attending a winemaking OR a grapegrowing session (10:45 am – Noon) AND the general session (9:00 am – 10:30 am). You must complete two of the three sessions to qualify for the certificate. A certificate of completion will be mailed after the conference.
Growers depend on healthy propagation material for the success and sustainability of vineyards. Protocols have been established to meet new clean grape standards to provide certified grapevine material to the grape industry. The first speaker of this session will present the new procedures in the production of grapevine certified stock available to nurseries and growers. The second speaker will cover material quality control and the consequences of planting non-certified material on the sustainability of the vineyard.
