Areas of Interest
Vineyard nutrition, canopy management, soils, vineyard mechanization, grower & winery relations
My program focuses on providing information to growers on viticultural practices such as vineyard site selection and establishment, selection of grape varieties, rootstocks, and training systems, canopy and crop load management, soils, vineyard nutrition and water management, and improving vineyard management efficiency. I am also working with Cornell's extension enologists to help grape growers and winemakers better understand each others' issues in order to improve working relations between the two groups.

B.E.V. NY 2022 Registration is Open!
B.E.V. NY 2022 - March 29-31, 2022
Time to put this year's B.E.V. NY conference on your calendar and get signed up to attend! This year's conference will be held as a fully virtual event again, as we did in 2021. And just like last year, your $100 registration fee allows you to "attend" as much or as little of the conference as you want. The "all you can eat buffet" for business, enology and viticulture information, you might say.
