BC Wine Grape Council - Third Thursday

Thursday, February 15, 2024 - 12:00

Strategies for mitigating the impacts of cold damage

Join Drs. Jim Willwerth, Brock University, and Ben-Min Chang, AAFC-SuRDC for a discussion on lessons learned from cold events in Ontario and strategies for mitigating the impacts of cold damage to vitis vinifera plants in the Okanagan Valley.  There will be a short presentation with plenty of time for Q&A on pruning options, crop recovery strategies, overwintering options like hilling and geotextiles and what to consider for the coming spring and bud break.  We encourage people who have been impacted by the January 2024 cold event to come share with their peers and discuss ways for the grape growing community to consider next steps.
