Wine Grape Production
The wine grape industry of southern Oregon is a relatively new, only 34 years old. It is increasing in size at a very fast pace. A new industry, many of the people involved have little or no experience growing wine grapes. Providing educational programs, workshops, newsletters and one-on-one grower contact that provides research- based information and training on vineyard development, pest management, and economics is the major thrust of this program area. The need for good information that addresses general production questions and problems is a must.
