The U.S. institute NYSAES (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station) in Geneva in the U.S. state new York in the AVA area Finger Lakes began viticulture research as a department of Cornell University in the 1880s. One of the focal points is development frost- and fungus-resistant Grape varieties through complex crossings of American-. EU citizens, and Asians Vines, Over 50 new varieties were for the production of table grapes. grape juice and grape jelly, but also as wine grapes created. Those were Alden. Brocton. Buffalo. Canadice. Cayuga White. Chardonel. Corot Noir. GR 7. Hector. Himrod. Horizon. Keuka. marquis. Melody. New York Muscat. Ontario. Portland. Pontiac. Ripley. Romulus. Ruby (2) Schuyler. Sheridan. Suffolk Red. Traminette and Yates, There are over 1,200 frost-tolerant genotypes made available for international breeding.
A pioneer and advocate for the cultivation of Vitis vinifera varieties in the northeastern United States was the university-born Russian Dr. Konstantin Frank (1897-1985). By Herman Amberg, Donald Crowe and Dr. Nelson Shaulis (1913-2000) became the form of education Geneva Double Curtain developed, which is particularly suitable for strong vine varieties. Shaulis was also developing the first fully automatic Grape harvester involved. Another focus is research on extraction. fermentation. taste and winemaking, One of the projects deals with the control of diseases and pests with minimal use of chemical agents. Since 2003, courses in oenology and viticulture offered. It operates in four institutes in Geneva and on the main campus of the university in Ithaca.
