Calling all Extension faculty, educators, crop consultants and growers!
This online training will provide basic “how to” steps to use the MyEV (My Efficient Vineyard) platform. MyEV is an open-access tool developed from the Efficient Vineyard Project and is used to integrate vineyard data into vineyard maps that can inform farm management decision-making. Participants should come prepared to learn how to build farm map(s) during the training, learn how to obtain spatial data from their farms or research plots, and how to upload and manage data in the platform. Examples will be provided by those who use the platform to visualize vineyard nutrition data and plant growth results. Please send questions for the speakers in advance by contacting Nataliya Shcherbatyuk ([email protected]). Be sure to register in advance to get webinar access. If you are interested in attending but cannot attend live, be sure to register and the webinar recording will be sent to you.
