BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Professor of viticulture. Prof. Pool received his Ph.D from Cornell in 1974 and joined the faculty as an assistant professor of viticulture and named professor in 1988. He was a member of the American Society of Viticulture and Enology, the International Society for Horticultural Sciences, and the American Society for Horticultural Sciences. He formed, and for 10 years, chaired the Grape Commodity Advisory Committee to the National Plant Germplasm Committee. He opened his own vineyard and winery, Billsboro, in Geneva, NY, which featured several varietals, including Pinot noir made from a clonal selection based on his own research. His primary research interests included: mechanization of pruning, crop level as it affects grapes and wine quality, sustainable viticulture, vineyard floor management and weed control, the effects of cultural practices and rootstocks on cold hardiness, interaction of disease (fungal, bacterial and viral), and wine productivity.
