Additional workshop on irrigation added to Viticulture Field Day, July 25
Low cost irrigation of newly-planted vineyards workshop now added to 23rd annual Viticulture Field Day.
With the unprecedented drought in many areas of Michigan, new vineyard plantings are at risk. Relatively inexpensive trickle-irrigation technology can help these situations. If a grower can deliver as little as a constant flow of a garden hose, it is possible to irrigate several hundred vines. Strategies to make that happen will be covered in a special irrigation workshop from 8 to 9 am at the MSU Viticulture Field Day, Wednesday, July 25, at the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center.
