The theme of this year’s conference is “Diverse germplasm and precision technologies for varied and changing climates”.
The GiESCO conference is one of the most important viticulture meetings in the world. Scientists from all over the globe attend this meeting, which is held every 2 years - except when a global pandemic delays it for 2 years. But finally, in July, many of the world’s experts in viticulture and related fields will be coming to Cornell for this important gathering.
While much of the week is devoted to scientific talks and tours, the final day of the conference is devoted to information that is geared towards more practical use by the industry, especially the local growers and winemakers, and this year THAT IS YOU!!
On Thursday, July 20, the Professional Day will feature industry-relevant, applied viticulture topics presented by international speakers.
Keynote speakers (and topics) are:
Other topics include:
Managing grapevine diseases with UV radiation, New fumigation alternatives, Vineyard nutrient budget and sampling protocols, Response of vineyard soils to biochar, and other timely topics that address grower challenges.
We encourage all of you to consider attending this one-day workshop that is devoted to the local industry. The Professional Day can be attended in person on the Cornell Campus ($150) or virtually via Zoom ($75)
