Demonstration and Evaluation of Pest Management Alternatives in Finger Lakes Grapes
Martinson, T.; Weigle, T.
This project addressed several pest management problems including approaches for controlling European red mite (ERM) through prebloom applications of Stylet oil and biological control with T. pyri; evaluation of a novel sprayer that reduces drift and application volume, continued demonstration of post-emergence weed control, establishment of grafted vines to renew vineyards infested with tomato ringspot virus, and support for timely pest management decision making through bi-weekly pest management updates delivered by e-mail and code-a-phone.
