Grape growers face a variety of tough diseases in the vineyard, from Powdery mildew and Botrytis to Black rot and Phomopsis. Not only do these diseases cause serious losses in crop yield and quality, but they can also overwinter and cause problems on your vines from season to season if left untreated. Preventing, managing and eliminating these diseases is essential to protect your investment in your wine, table and raisin grapes.
In nine years of running trials (2008 to 2017), Dr. Gubler of UC, Davis, has shown Luna Experience® at bloom and Flint® Extra or Flint® to be a top-rated program for grapes. In the 2016 (below) and 2017 trials, the alternation program with Flint Extra was a top-performing treatment.
Trial by Larry Bettiga, UCCE, Salinas Valley, 2013, shows Luna Experience® helped reduce the severity of Botrytis by an average of 75%.
