July 24….Grape Field Day -
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a Grape Field Day which is an educational opportunity for anyone from the novice to the experienced grower interested in grape production, said Robert Scott, AgriLife Extension agent at Lubbock. Scott said Dr. Ed Hellman, AgriLife Extension viticulturist at Lubbock, will lead the discussion. “I think grape growers will be interested most particularly in the different varieties that we grow here in the research vineyard,” Hellman said. “We have 30 different wine grape varieties, which will be the main focus of the field day. But we will also talk a little about the vineyard’s trellis/training system.” Individual registration is $15, due upon arrival. The fee includes light snacks. For more information, contact Scott at 806-775-1680, rj-scott@tamu.edu .
