Washington Wine Grape Association Offers Education on Clean Plants


Date: 07/29/14

PRESS RELEASE

The Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers is offering education on clean plants for their 2014 Summer Tour held on Thursday, August 7.

The tour will be presented in Spanish and includes classroom instruction and stops and tours of Washington State University Irrigated Agriculture Research Extension Center and Inland Desert Nursery. It is designed for Spanish speaking vineyard employees of all levels, but all are welcome to attend. The tour will offer an insider’s view of the efforts, processes, and significance of growing and maintaining sources of virus free grapevines for Washington’s important wine and grape industry.

Attendees will gain understanding of the effects viruses have on plant health, grape and wine quality, and how important it is for virus infection to be identified, remedied and prevented. There is a $20 non-refundable fee for the tour which starts at 6:45 a.m. at the Clore Center in Prosser.

To register, visit wawgg.org or call Janet Heath at 509-782-8234.

The 2014 WAWGG Summer Tour is conducted in partnership with the Washington Wine Industry Foundation's Northwest Clean Plant Outreach and Education Campaign project and is made possible, in part, by a Cooperative Agreement from United States Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
