MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2020. BY KRIS BEAL, VINEYARD TEAM.
Registration Now Open for VIRTUAL Sustainable Ag Expo & International Sustainable Winegrowing Summit
Since 2003, the Sustainable Ag Expo has offered world-class educational content for farmers, researchers, and consultants. We assemble the world’s top experts to present on the latest viticulture research and technology.
But of course, this year is different.
While we will miss connecting with everyone in person, the VIRTUAL format has several advantages:
- Content is available over 4 weeks (Nov 9 – Dec 4), so attendees can access at their convenience and without travel.
- Because we aren’t trying to fit an abundance of content into 3 days, we can address topics and details that we normally couldn’t accommodate.
- We have an even greater geographic representation of experts this year, featuring speakers from Tasmania, Cornell, Pennsylvania, and Washington, just to name a few.
This year’s program is robust. Topics include climate adaption, leafroll, and redblotch, winegrape supply and demand, invasive insects, biocontrol for Pierce’s Disease, irrigation technology, rootstock breeding, regenerative agriculture, biochar, floor management technology, vineyard and hemp coexistence, weed management, growing healthy soils, and marketing sustainability, just to name a few. View the Complete Program HERE.
And of course, we offer substantial Continuing Education credits:
- 20+ hours of CCA CE
- 15+ hours of DPR CE
Our Lodi Friends can access all live and recorded content for only $295 for the four-week period (the normal price is $345). Use Coupon Code: LodiFriends to get your discount. The coupon code expires on 10/10.
Watch the video below to view the speakers and the topics that will be discussed at this year’s expo.
Note from the Lodi Winegrape Commission: This year’s Expo has a FANTASTIC lineup of speakers and will be a great way to earn DPR and CCA credits if needed. We suggest watching talks with your viticulture team and discussing what you’ve learned afterward.
