This workshop will have TWO SESSIONS, and each session will be limited to 20 people.  You MUST choose to register for one of the following sessions:

SESSION 1: 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

SESSION 2: 1:30 PM – 5:00 PM

The workshop will feature the UGA Viticulture Team’s resident pest management specialists [Dr. Phil Brannen (diseases), Dr. Brett Blaauw (insects), and Mr. Wayne Mitchem (weeds)] and Cain Hickey.

The goal of this workshop is to help attendees develop a sound, phenology- (growing stage-)based vineyard pest and cultural management schedule in order to effectively manage the canopy and pests (disease, insect, and weed) throughout the growing season. Attendees will be given a blank phenology-based template to fill in.  Presenters will have the same template in electronic format, and will fill in appropriate, growth stage-specific management strategies throughout the session so that attendees can copy information onto their own physical template.  The goal is for attendees to walk away from this workshop with a well-developed spray and management plan, and be well-prepared to manage vineyard canopies and pests throughout the season.  This workshop is anticipated to be timely, as bud break will likely occur within a few weeks after this workshop.  BE PREPARED!

Lunch will NOT be provided, but there are plenty of eateries within a 10 minute-drive from Stonewall Creek Vineyards –  on Highway 441, or downtown, in Clayton, GA.

PLEASE REGISTER BY March 12th, 2018.

To register, please contact John Scaduto (, Rabun County ANR Extension Agent and workshop co-coordinator. Let he or Cain Hickey ( know if you have questions.
