Hard copies of the Vineyard Update are available for an additional $35 per year.

Finger Lakes Vineyard Notes - The Vineyard Notes newsletter will no longer be published beginning in 2018. Enrollees in the FLGP will continue to receive the Finger Lakes Vineyard Update. Past issues of the Vineyard Notes newsletters are available from the Cornell Library at

Articles are written by Viticulture Extension Specialist Hans Walter-Peterson, Statewide Grape IPM Specialist Tim Weigle, Cornell faculty and other guest authors, and cover all aspects of grape production, including pruning and training, fertilization, pest management, farm business management, and marketing.

FLGP Activity During COVID-19 Restrictions

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, FLGP staff are working from home right now. However, as service providers for agriculture producers, we are considered to be exempt from the Governor's order for non-essential workers to remain home. This means that we will be able to continue our field work while also following the CDC's guidelines for social distancing and hygiene. Here's how this will impact our work while these restrictions are in place:

Farm Visits: Hans remains available for consultation by phone, text or email. If a farm visit is necessary, let me know what you would like for me to look at and where it is, and I will make arrangements to come by. I will get in touch afterwards to discuss what I see and possible solutions or other resources.

Meetings: We have already scheduled our Spring IPM and Tailgate meetings for the year, but the current restrictions on public gatherings will prevent us from holding them as long as they are in place. As the date of each meeting approaches, we will assess the situation based on guidance from Cornell and determine if it is safe to hold it. We are looking into some online options as alternatives to meetings this year.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions about any of this. We're still figuring out how to work during this new reality we're in, like many of you. In the meantime?

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay away from most people, and wash your hands. We'll get through this.
