This link takes you to a report on a grant awarded to Virginia Tech University by the USDA-NIFA.  Boy, $3.8 million is a lot of money.  The project is significant in scale and should provide grape growers with a lot of great information.  Dr. Wolf is a highly respected viticulturist and his work has had a great impact on the industry throughout the United States.  Some of the results of this project will be incorporated into the Grape Community of Practice eXtension project (it actually states that near the end).  I am looking forward to what kind of outreach programming they come up with and how we can help them in that effort.
