February, 2024

Due to the absence of grape bud LTEs from most sites the decision was made to halt sampling for the time being.  Therefore there is no hardiness update this week.

Attached is a guide to assessing winter injury via bud dissection.  It was previously distributed in 2022 but sending again for those added to the distribution list more recently.
