Horticulture Extension Specialists Reciece Innovation Grant Awards.

Two University of Georgia Extension Specialists in the Department of Horticulture have been selected to receive Extension Innovation Grants.  These grants are established to promote unique and innovative Extension research for projects that need seed funding to get them started,  or have a very specific focus that may not be covered under other outside granting agencies.  Dr. Cain Hickey, Extension Viticulture Specialist’s project is titled “Establishment of a Chardonel and Chambourcin vineyard for performance of own-roots and rootstocks in a region conducive to Pierce’s disease infection and vine death.”  Dr. Bodie Pennisi’s project is titled “Putting the P’s in IPM: Integrated Pest and Pollinator Management Hands-on.”  Well done colleagues!
