Registration open for Northern Grapes Webinar Jan 17 with Amaya Atucha

Impact of fruit zone sunlight exposure on fruit composition of cold climate hybrid grapes

January 17, 2019, 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (12:00 Noon Central Time)

 Dr. Amaya Atucha
Assistant Professor and Fruit crop Extension Specialist, University of Wisconsin
Madison, Wisconsin

Dr. Atucha’s research program focuses on fruit crop physiology and production of deciduous fruit crops (cranberries and cold climate grapes). The goal of her extension program is to deliver up to date, research-based information to fruit growers that will lead to improve production practices of fruit crops in Wisconsin.

 The webinar will present results on the effect of pre-veraison leaf and lateral shoot removal treatments on organic acid and sugar profiles for Brianna, Frontenac, La Crescent, and Marquette in southern Wisconsin. The effects of the treatment on juice and wine total phenolic concentrations (TPC), monomeric anthocyanin concentrations (MAC), and percent polymeric color for Frontenac, Marquette, and Petite Pearl will also be addressed.

Registration:  You need to pre-register to attend.  Registrants will receive a link and reminder 1-2 days before the presentation.
