Office Hours with Dave and Anita, Episode 16: Delayed Spring Growth and Cold Damage in the Vineyard
From Caroline Firman on June 18th, 2021
Kaan Kurtural, (Associate Cooperative Extension Specialist, Viticulture, UC Davis), Larry Bettiga, (Viticulture Farm Advisor, Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties), Mark Battany, (Area Viticulture Advisor, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties), and Matt Fidelibus (Cooperative Extension Specialist, Viticulture, UC Davis) discussed Delayed Spring Growth and Cold Weather Damage in Grapevines. Growers across the state are reporting similar symptoms, but it may take an experienced eye to differentiate what is delayed spring growth and what is cold damage. The presenters also talked about how to bring these vineyards back to productivity given the water availability we have at the moment.
