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.

There is no additional charge for this workshop, but individuals need to register for it by emailing Diane Dings at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or calling her at 269-944-1477 ext. 203.
