Breeding new grape varieties
This week on the show: do you know what's living in your firewood? Plus, new cultivars could change Missouri's wine industry.
Hosted by Kyle Deas.

Plus: Deep in the Ozarks, an international team of researchers are working together to breed new forms of grapes that are resistant to disease or pests. And what they find could have an effect on the wine industry in Missouri and beyond. KSMU’s Jennifer Moore has this story.
