  • This issue is packed with new information from various research trials conducted here in Oregon, whether it is from vineyard plots, the wine lab, or the growth chamber, results are likely to have impact on vineyard and winery production here in Oregon. James Osborne, Enology Extension Specialist, opens this month’s newsletter with an article about methods for successful malolactic fermentation. Patty Skinkis, Extension Viticulture Specialist, provides an article summarizing various factors relating to fruitfulness and vine balance. Of particular notice this month is the invited article by Melodie Putnam, director of the OSU Plant Clinic. Her article is an update on trunk disease research, a very timely topic for Oregon vineyards given the rising concern. Vaughn Walton, horticultural entomologist, writes about several invasive pests that the OSU Entomology Team has been investigating over the past few years, including the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug and mealybugs. In this issue, we also introduce you to a new faculty member in enology, Elizabeth Tomasino, and provide an update from the OWRI interim director, Bill Boggess. We wrap up the newsletter with a list of new publications authored by researchers at the OWRI. Do not forget to check out the internship and upcoming events section for more ways you can be involved with the programs within the OWRI!
