Finger Lakes Teaching and Demonstration Vineyard Growth Stages 2015

Gillian Trimber, Viticulture Community Educator

Finger Lakes Teaching and Demonstration Vineyard Growth Stages 2015

The Finger Lakes Teaching and Demonstration Vineyard, a partnership between the Finger Lakes Grape Program and Finger Lakes Community College, serves as a place for hands-on learning for students, growers, and the general public. It also provides us with an opportunity to compare an array of grape varieties planted side by side.

Here, you can see data on when each cultivar we have planted reached bud break, veraison, and harvest in the 2015 season.

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.
