Slides from Presentation by Dr. Benjamin Bois, University of Burgundy

September 17, 2014

We were privileged to have Dr. Benjamin Bois, an associate professor in viticulture and climatology from the University of Burgundy, speak to about 40 growers and winemakers at Fox Run on Monday, September 8, 2014. Dr. Bois spoke about growing and producing Pinot noir in Burgundy, with a special emphasis on how climatic and site conditions ("terroir" in other words) can impact production and characteristics in the variety. He also included a few comparisons of the climate in the Finger Lakes relative to that in Burgundy.

We want to thank Dr. Alan Lakso for hosting Benjamin and bringing him to the Finger Lakes. We also want to thank Scott and Ruth Osborn at Fox Run for hosting the event.

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.
