In order to better serve the needs of the grape and wine industry in Seneca County, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Seneca County (CCE Seneca) is a founding member of the Finger Lakes Grape Program (FLGP).  A consortium of six Finger Lakes CCE Associations and Cornell University, the FLGP provides a Viticulture Specialist, technicians as well as the support of Cornell University and the national Land Grant system to assist you in producing the best grapes and wine possible.

At FLGP’s request, CCE Seneca is now responsible for the enrollment of Seneca County vineyard owners into the program.

When you enroll in the FLGP, you have a direct link to the latest information from Cornell and other resources around the country on topics that are important to you as a grape grower including:

  • pest management
  • vineyard nutrition
  • crop management
  • farm business and marketing

The FLGP remains committed to providing you with important and timely information through a variety of means to help you produce the best crop possible, as efficiently as possible.

Your participation as a member supports the overall FLGP and CCE Seneca’s continued involvement as well as providing specific benefits.  For 2020 the enrollment fee remains $75 which entitles you to:

    • The Finger Lakes Vineyard Update email messages
    • Veraison to Harvest Newsletter
    • Grower Tailgate meetings throughout the summer
    • Vineyard consultations with FLGP viticulture staff
    • Important announcements about upcoming meetings and workshops.

      You can also purchase copies of: 

      1. 2020 New York and Pennsylvania Pest Management Guidelines for Grapes with your enrollment.  This Guideline will be available in late February 2020. Stated costs include postage.
      2. Grape IPM Guidelines will be available again online in 2020, but there is a cost to access them.
