Project reporting session Feb. 26 in Portland

PORTLAND – A project reporting session is scheduled for Feb. 26 at the Cornell Lake Erie Research and Extension Laboratory at 6592 W. Main Road. This location will serve as the satellite location via polycom.

The physical presenters will be in Geneva. The meeting will begin at 9:45 a.m. and run until about 2 p.m. Updates on projects funded by the Lake Erie Regional Grape Program Research and Extension Program Inc. (the group charged with dispersing the 75 cents per ton voluntary assessment for Concords produced in the Lake Erie Region), New York Wine and Grape Foundation, New York Wine Grape Growers Association and Viticulture Consortium East, will be presented, as well as, short presentations on proposed new projects.

The meeting format is designed to encourage discussion between those who are conducting or proposing projects, the funders and the grower community by limiting presentations to five minutes and eliminating the use of visual aids.

Lunch is provided for attendees but you must register to reserve a lunch. Respond to Kate by Feb. 19 at 792-2800 extension 201 or kjr45@cornell.edu.
