Group To Discuss Grape Research Projects

PORTLAND – A project reporting session is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 13, at the Cornell Lake Erie Research and Extension Laboratory, 6592 West Main Road, Portland.

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.
