Ohio Grapegrowers Fungicide Resistance Management Full Day Workshop
February 16, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$35
Preregistration is required: Register using the 2020 Ohio Wine and Grape Conference Registration Form (.pdf)
Registration will be limited to 60 people, and close January 3 2020.
Fungicide resistance to powdery and downy mildews is a growing concern for Ohio grape producers. Developing spray programs that slow the development of resistance in a vineyard can be challenging, especially when there are limited fungicides available that have different modes of action. This workshop is designed to assist crop consultants, vineyard managers or anyone who writes or recommends fungicide programs, with developing a fungicide spray program for wine or table grapes.
During the first part of the day, participants will learn from national experts in grape diseases and fungicide resistance management, about mildew diseases and management, best practices for using fungicides, and best sprayer practices. Participants will then break into groups and build a spray program based on a real-life scenario. During the last part of the day each group will defend their spray programs and provide suggestions and advice to other groups on how each program could be improved.
This workshop is designed for crop consultants, vineyard managers or anyone who writes or recommends fungicide programs.
