International Maple Grading School
The 4th IMSI International Maple Grading School will be held in Wooster, Ohio, on October 25 and 26, 2007, immediately following the joint North American Maple Syrup Council and the International Maple Syrup Institute conference being held in Akron, Ohio on October 21-24. This popular school is an officially sanctioned program of the International Maple Syrup Institute. This school was developed for maple producers, bulk syrup buyers, state inspectors and others needing to accurately grade maple syrup or to judge maple product entries at fairs and contests. Pertinent quality control issues are also covered. The school is conducted by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets. Ohio State University Extension is the host this year, the first time the maple grading school is being held outside of New England. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
