Description: Overview of Grapevine Diseases: Sampling and Diagnostics
By Judit Monis, Ph.D.
Eurofins STA Laboratories

The most practical way to avoid problems in the vineyard is to plant pathogen-free vines. However, grapevine disease-causing organisms may be already present and established in the vineyard. This webinar will provide information that will help vineyard managers, nursery personnel, and growers understand disease and collect appropriate samples for testing. Three different vineyard situations will be presented with emphasis on appropriate sampling to aid diagnosis. The ultimate goal is to determine the cause of the vineyard problem to avoid the spread and propagation of diseases in the vineyard.

• Overview of grapevine diseases and symptoms
• Disease diagnostic tests: NEW! detection of Grapevine red blotch associated virus
