Following a Plan

Monday, May 29, 2023

Right now, people are very busy trying to sort out what is actually happening in the vineyard.

Are the vines alive or dead?  If there is top growth, how many buds are growing and are there many buds at the base sending up suckers? (This could be a sign of trunk injury that may have implications in a few weeks as the weather gets hotter!)

Are you prepared to be able to apply pest controls to where the vine is actually growing (sucker growth adds a new challenge when your sprayer is set up for canopy spraying)? Have you thought about your best pest control options/product choices ahead of time, so you get the best value considering the costs?
