Schedule for 2013 Beaumont Field Day

Tomorrow is the Field Day at the Beaumont Horticultural Unit (http://msucares.com/crec/beaumont_office.html).  Below is the schedule.  As you can see, I will be speaking about bunch grapes.  Earlier this year we put out some Villard blanc, Miss blanc, and Blanc du bois.  They are looking good so far.  Come on out and see for yourself!
