Throughout North America, higher spring precipitation has led to increased vigor and canopy densities, lending to amplified incidence and conditions for powdery mildew (Erysiphe necator, Uncinula necator) and Botrytis bunch rot (Botrytis cinerea). Understanding and monitoring disease incidence is crucial for managing fruit quality. In this webinar JT Jaeger, Enartis Viticulture Specialist, will be giving an overview of powdery mildew and Botrytis bunch rot current pressures and potential trends for the 2019 vintage. We will be reviewing the detrimental physical and chemical alterations these fungi inflect on grapes and techniques for mitigating wine matrix alterations from fruit compromised by powdery mildew and Botrytis bunch rot.
