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.

Our speaker on April 2 will be Dr. Imed Dami. Assistant Professor and Viticulture Extension Specialist with The Ohio State University. Dr. Dami’s research focus is stress physiology in grapes, particularly the negative impact of cold temperatures on grapes. The focus of his research program will be to improve vineyard efficiency with the goal of improving wine quality. Dr. Dami received his PhD at Colorado State where he worked at the Orchard Mesa Research Center in Grand Junction. He also visited Colorado last year to do individual vineyard consultations and to present several seminars on grape growing. His impressions and suggestions for the Colorado wine industry as well as his presentations are contained in his final report, which is available by clicking here.
Dr. Dami will be talking about vine pruning and cold damage.
