SWD, GGANS Summer Tour, and Next Vineyard Walk!

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Hi Folks,

As you have probably heard, there have been a few trap catches of Spotted Wing Drosophila in the province.  Numbers remain low but I would strongly recommend that you start monitoring in your vineyards now using the technique outlined in our SWD Factsheet.  If you start seeing significant numbers in your traps, you may want to consider using one of the insecticides that have been registered through the Emergency Use Program as a precaution.  The list of products can be found here

Reminder that the GGANS Summer Tour will be held in the South Shore area on Wednesday August 21st - please contact Joanne Moran at the Grape Growers Assoc NS ggans@ns.sympatico.ca  for more information and to book your seat on the bus! 

Finally our next vineyard walk will be held on Thursday August 29th,  6pm at Avondale Sky Winery, 80 Avondale Cross Road, RR#2 Newport Landing .  Click here for directions and a Google Map.  We have had great turn out so far this season for all our vineyard walks so we would love to see you all out again on the 29th!
