The 2011 Spring Vine Health Field Days kicks off today with the first of 10 workshops being held in the Hunter Valley.
Field day coordinator and National Wine & Grape Industry Centre deputy director Greg Dunn says the initiative aims to provide practical support and knowledge to improve and better manage vine health.
“Workshops and field days are held early in the season and address priorities that have been identified to meet individual region needs,” Dunn said.
The program is funded by GWRDC, is an initiative of the National Wine & Grape Industry Centre with inputs from DPI NSW and Charles Sturt University.
Although the workshops and field days are diverse in terms of activities and presenters, the major topics being addressed this season are advanced disease management and soil biology and management.
