2015 Grape Disease Control

black rotEach year, Dr. Wayne Wilcox, plant pathologist at Cornell University, publishes a comprehensive summary of fungal diseases that grape growers in the Eastern US encounter. The document includes fungal resistance, in-depth information about individual diseases, and a “putting it all together” section. It’s packed with great information: http://www.fruit.cornell.edu/grape/pdfs/Wilcox-Grape%20Disease%20Control%202015.pdf

    Hello Tim….Mike Spiak here from Fossil Stone Vineyards in Greenfield NY. My heart goes out to all those in the Thousand Island region. For what it’s worth, I too was unpleasantly surprised by a frost that killed 90% of my Marquette (VSP) on the 22nd. I’m in Greenfield NY and my farm sits at an elevation of 642′ MSL. My LaCrescent loss was about 10% which is trained TWC. Don’t know if this helps in your monitoring but just thought you should know.
