Protecting grape quality

Insect pressure at Christmas time

It’s not only powdery mildew and botrytis which can arrive as unwanted guests around Christmas time - insects can also join in on the vineyard festivities!

Managing the threat of botrytis over summer

Flowering occurs from late October to late December, depending on variety and location, and it is arguably the most important time to protect and maintain vine health.

Effective spray coverage is essential - this can be achieved by adjusting sprayer set up to target the canopy and bunches 

Powdery mildew does not shut down for Christmas

Weather conditions over the festive season can be very favourable for the spread of powdery mildew, often referred to as the ‘dry weather disease’, with young berries particularly susceptible to infection. 

Disease control vital for optimum grape production

Getting disease control right in vineyards is vital not only to maximise input efficiency and effectiveness, but also to optimise production and fruit quality. Viticulturists have plenty of things to consider when it comes to disease control, from chemical selection and rotation to spray interval management and application techniques.
