Publisher:Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center
Following the extreme minimum lows experienced in January and February across Ohio, many vineyards were affected and vines sustained extensive bud damage and likely trunk damage depending on the location and the variety grown. The OSU Grape Team conducted a survey by sending a questionnaire on February 6, 2014, to grape and wine producers in Ohio. The purpose of the survey was to gather information on crop loss state-wide, develop research and outreach strategies to assist growers, and timely communication of objective data to state and federal agencies in case it is needed for assistance or disaster relief programs. This report is a compilation of the survey results.
