Learn to Grow Table Grapes at Feb. 6 Workshop in Parma
Written by Marlene Fritz
PARMA, Idaho-Snake River Valley residents can unlock the keys to
producing luscious table grapes when University of Idaho Extension faculty
deliver their research-based knowledge to participants in this year's Table
Grape Symposium Feb. 6 at Parma High School.
Pomologist Essie Fallahi will discuss propagation, pruning,
training, canopy designs, nutrition and storage for maximum table grape
size, production and quality. Nematologist Saad Hafez will address nematodes
and ground fumigation, and plant pathologist Krishna Mohan will cover grape
powdery mildew and other important diseases. In addition to these Parma
Research and Extension Center faculty, the workshop will feature Pipeco's
Dick Bronson on grape irrigation and Wilbur-Ellis' Tom Tankersley on grape
insects and agrichemicals.
Participants who bring their pruning tools and allow workshop
sponsors to sanitize them may participate in an early-afternoon session of
applying what they've learned.
The workshop, co-sponsored by the University of Idaho College of
Agricultural and Life Sciences and the Snake River Table Grape Growers
Association, will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 2:30 p.m. Cost is $28
for individuals and $40 for couples. Lunch is included.
To register, call the SRTGGA at (208) 573-8405 or (208) 850-4261
by Feb. 2. Parma High School is located at 137 Panther Way in Parma.
