Grower input needed on sour rot and wasp challenges in vineyards
Michigan State University Extension is looking for your input about sour rot and wasp control in grapes.
Sour rot of grapes can reduce yield and quality, and it is challenging to manage. Part of this is because insects such as wasps can move the causal organisms (e.g., fungi and bacteria) between clusters as fruit ripen. Michigan State University Extension is working on solutions to this problem with colleagues at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This group has developed a quick (less than 5 minutes) survey to gather input on the scale of your problems with sour rots, and to learn how growers across the Great Lakes region are tackling this problem.
The survey asks about disease management and insects associated with sour rots. This information will be useful for tailoring our work to address this problem.
Thanks in advance for completing this.
