OSU received a $630,000 share of the $3.8 million grant, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Specialty Crop Research Initiative.
The goal of the project is to reduce the environmental impact of grape production and improve consumer attitudes toward eastern states’ wines.
Ohio’s wine industry has reached an annual production of more than 1.1 million gallons coming from 1,500 acres of grapes, according to an OSU press release.
