The Viticulture Discussion list is sponsored by the eXtension Grape Community of Practice and hosted by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. The purpose of the list is to encourage and facilitate communications among all individuals interested in the commercial production of grapes. The Viticulture list is a forum for discussion of viticulture production practices, problems, research results, marketing, or industry issues. Grape growers, scientists and educators are among current participants in the discussion. One common and powerful use of the discussion list is to post a question, thereby accessing the collective viticultural knowledge of the entire list. Additionally, postings can include announcements, research briefs or abstracts, and issues or problems to discuss. All forms of commercial advertising are strictly prohibited.
