FLGP 2018 Year in Review

Looking back at the 2018 growing season, it's pretty safe to say that nobody in the Finger Lakes is sad to see it in the rear view mirror. Growers and winemakers alike had to rely on every trick up their sleeve to bring in quality fruit this year, and as our colleague Chris Gerling said, they all needed some extra sleeves.

The '2018 Year in Review' highlights just a few of the activities that kept us busy this year, but there were plenty of others beyond what's described here. Whether it was dealing with significant sour rot at harvest, or working with the Department of Ag & Markets after the first identification of spotted lanternfly in the Finger Lakes, or responding to any number of questions and concerns in the field this year, there was plenty to keep us on the move this year. And we're looking forward to more of the same next season!

2017 FLGP Year in Review

The Finger Lakes Grape Program had another busy year in 2017. We continued our partnership with Finger Lakes Community College at our Teaching & Demonstration Vineyard, held 10 field meetings with growers during the season, ran field trials aimed at improving the quality and profitability of Finger Lakes grapes, and continued to run the NY Grape & Wine Classifieds system, which had more than 400 ads placed on it this year. A big shout out goes to our hard-working summer technician, John Kurtz, who ran the trapping network for this year's Invasive Pest monitoring project and helped out with a number of other field projects this year.

You can learn more about some of the work that we did last year in support of the grape growers in the Finger Lakes in this year's 'Year in Review'. Enjoy!

2016 Year in Review

The Finger Lakes Grape Program had another busy year in 2016. Between organizing another successful B.E.V. NY conference, hosting 10 Tailgate meetings around the region, conducting field trials and continuing our cooperative efforts with Finger Lakes Community College at our Teaching & Demonstration Vineyard, there was a lot going on. Fortunately, we had two great helpers this year in Donald Caldwell and Corrigan Herbert.

Katie Gold Named New Grape Pathologist

Katie Gold has been named as the new assistant professor of Grape Disease Ecology and Epidemiology at Cornell AgriTech in Geneva. Katie is currently completing her Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Upon completion of her Ph.D., she will conduct postdoctoral research at the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in California from August 2019 through January 2020. While at JPL, Katie will gain experience with the latest hardware and software for remote imaging with future application to digital agriculture and grape production. She will begin her tenure-track assistant professor position on February 1, 2020 with responsibilities that are 60% research and 40% extension.

Her research and extension seminars were on the topics of "Hyperspectral systems for pre-symptomatic potato disease detection" and "Agricultural sensors in Grape IPM", highlighting some of the tools and approaches that she will bring to the position. Katie is already setting up collaborations for her grape work in New York and plans to attend the American Society for Enology and Viticulture - Eastern Section Meeting in Geneva this July.
