The first Monday of each month, beginning at 9 AM, the CWIDB will host an informal conference call for all grape-growers in Colorado. We will be joined by an expert, specialist or speaker to address a timely topic for 20-30 minutes, followed by Q&A and grower discussion of current issues and questions.
For March, we have moved the date of this month’s call to Friday, March 9 at 9 AM so that Dr. Tim Martinson, Senior Extension Associate with Cornell University in New York and project leader for the Northern Grapes Project, can join us. Dr. Martinson will be talking about pruning for vine health and grape quality.
You can join this conference call each month by going to www.uberconference.com/cwidb in your web browser. Log in with your name then select whether to join the audio portion of the conference using VoIP on your computer or by calling 720.515.1880 on your phone. Although our speakers may have a brief video presentation, you will not need to join the meeting on-line.
You can also join the calls in person at either CSU’s Orchard Mesa Research Center, 3168 B 1/2 Road, Grand Junction, CO 81503-9621, or at the Colorado Dept. of Agriculture, 305 Interlocken Parkway, Broomfield, CO 80021.
Dr. Martinson’s work with Cornell Extension supports the continued growth and profitability of the New York wine and grape industry, focusing on collaborative vineyards trials and surveys in commercial vineyards and on providing growers and wineries with educational programs, workshops and newsletters to support profitable production of grapes and wine in New York State.
Dr. Imed Dami from Ohio State will join our call on April 2 at 9 AM. We return to the first Monday of every month in April.
