2019 Plant Protection Series
Napa Valley College, Little Theater - 2277 Napa Vallejo Highway - Building 1200 (TBD)
In collaboration with the CSWA, we are pleased to announce a new edition to our educational offerings entitled “Plant Protection Series.” The content of this new seminar series is targeted at those in the grape growing community who – in an effort to keep vines clear from pests and diseases - make decisions on what to apply in the vineyard and when. These technical seminars will focus exclusively on a narrow range of plant protection topics in order to hone the attendees’ expertise in the field. The inaugural Plant Protection Series will focus on the use of Copper and Adjuvants. These materials will be dissected by researches, allowing attendees to gain the deepest possible knowledge of how to effectively and safely use the materials, and understand the repercussions of their use. If you are in the midst of drafting plant protection plans for the upcoming growing season, you will not want to miss out on this valuable offering.
Registration Begins at 7:30am with coffee and pastries.
