Arkansas Association of Grape Growers 2013 Conference, Trade Show, and Banquet
The day will begin with the Annual Business Meeting of the AAGG, followed by workshops led by regional experts on a range of topics of interest to viticulturists. Topics will include sustainable grape-growing practices in the midwest, wildlife management, grape breeding advances, entomology, marketing and development, and a panel of grape farmers discussing a range of current concerns in the vineyard. The conference concludes with a social hour and banquet. Throughout the day, there will be many opportunities for networking among grape and muscadine growers, vendors, academicians, and individuals interested in the growth of viticulture and economic development in Arkansas and the surrounding region.
