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 protecting your investment in your wine, table and raisin grapes.
