  1. 1. The New Minnesota Grape Integrated Pest Management Manual: Pathogen Fact Sheets Joy A Hilton Master of Agriculture in Horticultural Science
  2. 2. Personal Goals <ul><li>Personal Career Goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Work with vineyard owners to help them create sustainable and/or organic vineyards. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Own and operate a vineyard and winery. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Personal Project Goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gain a thorough understanding of the following </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grape disease cycles, signs and symptoms </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Economic impacts </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Resistant and susceptible cultivars </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Conventional and organic sprays </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cultural control practices </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify diseases in the field </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This project, along with other courses, will assist me in working in the field of sustainable viticulture. </li></ul>
  3. 3. IPM Manual Goal <ul><ul><li>Create a one stop shop for Minnesota grape growers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide an overview of sustainable grape production. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cover common pests and pathogens as well as general IPM practices specific to Minnesota grape growing. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Need for a MN Grape IPM Manual <ul><ul><li>Funding provided by the Department of Agriculture. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increasing grape grower population. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Based on the Minnesota Grape Growers Profile, 2007. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Need for Minnesota Specific information. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Our climate and varieties require different practices . </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. MN Grape Grower Profile <ul><li>There are a total of 632 vineyards in Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><li>65% were planted within the last five years. </li></ul><ul><li>Estimated total number of acres in Minnesota is 1,056 </li></ul><ul><li>Estimated 582,072 vines in Minnesota. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Grape Use - MN Grape Grower Profile <ul><ul><li>Growing for many purposes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many new growers are not professionals. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>View grape growing as a good way to earn extra income. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fun retirement plan for someone who loves grapes and does not really want to retire. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Deciding what to cover <ul><li>Fall of 2007, Dr. Hoover created a survey that was handed out to local growers at the September Grape Growers Association meeting held at the Horticulture Research Center (HRC). </li></ul><ul><li>Interviewed MN growers and Peter Hemstad, owner of St. Croix Vineyards and research scientist at the Horticulture Research Center. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Available resources <ul><li>Various resources available, but in many locations and not user friendly. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ohio State’s Midwest Small Fruit Pest Management Handbooks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Aimed at more experienced growers, covers a broad spectrum of small fruits and does not address many cultural practices or organic methods of control in detail. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Compendium of Grape Diseases , by Pearson and Goheen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Geared toward plant pathologists rather than growers. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>From Vines to Wines by Jeff Cox </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>General understanding of grape growing, but not enough disease information to assist growers with real issues. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Backyard Vintner by Jim Law </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Helpful with training techniques and producing small batches of wine, but does not go into enough disease detail for larger scale production </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>General Viticulture by Winkler, Cook, Kliewer, and Lider </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Helpful, but must be cross referenced with up to date (post 1979) and cold climate information. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>It is difficult for new growers to decipher what is best for their vineyards in a quick or easy manner. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Process <ul><li>Manual work distribution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dr. Hoover - general IPM sections </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Joy Hilton – Pathogen Factsheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Suzanne Wold-Burkness – Pest Factsheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dimtre Mollov – Viral Factsheets </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Scouted vineyards for disease symptoms. </li></ul><ul><li>Gathered Resources </li></ul><ul><li>Wrote factsheets </li></ul><ul><li>Reviewed by Dimtre Mollov </li></ul><ul><li>Reviewed by Dr. Hoover </li></ul><ul><li>Rewrites as needed </li></ul>

  13. 13. Sustainable Grape Growing <ul><li>Integrated pest management (IPM) is a philosophy based on several guiding principles. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Control options that are environmentally sound, socially acceptable and economically feasible. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>IPM is built on information about both the crop and the pest. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Crop </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Production practices, soil type and pH, and at what growth stages is the plant susceptible to a particular pest infestation. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pest </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When the pest is present in relation to the susceptible growth stage of the crop, what stage of the pest is most easily managed, and what pest level causes economic loss. </li></ul></ul></ul>

  15. 15. Black Rot - Overview <ul><li>Native to North America </li></ul><ul><li>Can cause significant crop damage in Minnesota </li></ul><ul><li>Most Minnesota hardy varieties are highly resistant </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Frontenac, Frontenac Gris and Marquette, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>V . vinifera are highly susceptible. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In warm humid climates, susceptible varieties can experience complete loss if the pathogen is left uncontrolled. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Black Rot – Vegetative Symptoms <ul><li>Young leaves are susceptible to infection as they unfold. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Become resistant once they mature. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Small, tan, circular spots appear in spring and early summer. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>About two weeks after the initial infection. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Within a few days small black fruiting bodies develop around the necrotic area. </li></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html http://www.ppdl.purdue.edu/PPDL/weeklypics/Weekly_Picture6-25-01-2.html
  17. 17. Black Rot – Fruit Symptoms <ul><li>Berry infection is the most serious phase. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Possibly leads to significant economic losses. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Susceptible to infection immediately prior to bloom through four weeks after bloom. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Small, whitish dot that is quickly surrounded by a reddish, brown ring. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The berries will dry out, loosing their spherical shape and becoming flat on the top. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Appear light or chocolate brown and quickly develop black spores on the surface </li></ul>
  18. 18. Black Rot – Disease Cycle <ul><li>Overwinters in mummies on the vineyard floor or vine. </li></ul><ul><li>In the spring, with a rain of 0.3mm, ascospores and conidia are released and dispersed by wind and water. </li></ul><ul><li>This process can continue for up to eight hours after one rainfall. </li></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  19. 19. Black Rot – Control Strategies <ul><li>Sanitation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Clear all mummies from the ground after leaf drop or till them into the soil prior to bud break. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Utilize pruning and training systems to improve air circulation. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose resistant cultivars, such as Frontenac and Frontenac gris. </li></ul><ul><li>Spray Timing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitoring and spraying should begin immediately before bloom through four weeks after bloom. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organic Sprays </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fixed copper or sulfur products. </li></ul></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  20. 20. Downy Mildew - Overview <ul><li>Downy mildew is a major disease of grapes in Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><li>Causes deformed shoots, tendrils and clusters as well as premature defoliation. </li></ul><ul><li>A major outbreak of this disease can cause severe losses in yield and quality. </li></ul><ul><li>In the Midwest, symptoms don’t usually appear before bloom. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Downy Mildew – Vegetative Symptoms <ul><li>Develop yellowish-green lesions on the upper surface. </li></ul><ul><li>Affected area becomes brown, or necrotic, and is limited by veins. </li></ul><ul><li>Fungal sporulation occurs on the lower leaf surface in the form of a delicate, dense, white growth. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This downy growth is what gives the disease its name. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Young shoots, tendrils, petioles and inflorescences are also infected. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Downy Mildew – Fruit Symptoms <ul><li>Young berries are highly susceptible to downy mildew infection. </li></ul><ul><li>Appear grayish in color and are covered in a downy felt. </li></ul><ul><li>Becomes resistant to infection three to four weeks after bloom </li></ul><ul><li>Berries will remain in the cluster and are easily distinguished from healthy ripening berries. </li></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  23. 23. Downy Mildew – Disease Cycle <ul><li>Overwinters on leaf debris as oospores. </li></ul><ul><li>In spring germinate in water when the temperature reaches 52 o F. </li></ul><ul><li>Treelike structures, emerge from the stomata of plant tissue. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This growth requires 95-100% humidity, four hours of darkness and a temperature of 64-72 o F. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The sporangia are then dispersed by wind or rain/water splash to the stomata of plant tissue . </li></ul></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  24. 24. Downy Mildew – Control Strategies <ul><li>Humidity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Choose a site where vines are exposed to sun all day through the growing period. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Utilize pruning and training systems to improve air circulation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Proper weed control. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sanitation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Clear crop debris from the ground after leaf drop or incorporate it into the soil at the beginning of the season. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Choose resistant cultivars, such as Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, Marquette or Marechal Foch. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Downy Mildew- Control Strategies <ul><ul><li>Spray - Timing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor V. vinifera all season. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor other varieties just prior to bloom through fourteen days after bloom. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Copper hydroxide and copper sulphate. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Only protects vines from new infections. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Does not eliminate existing infections and are not systemic. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Use of copper in organic agriculture is of environmental concern. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Alternatives include plant extracts, biological controls and substances that trigger the vines’ immune system. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Have not proven to be economically viable in controlling downy mildew. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  26. 26. Eutypa Dieback - Overview <ul><li>One of the most destructive woody tissue diseases found in commercial grape production. </li></ul><ul><li>For many years, phomopsis was thought to be the cause of dead-arm disease. </li></ul><ul><li>Researchers discovered, in 1976, that this disease was caused by phomopsis , which causes the spotting phase of the disease, and eutypa dieback. </li></ul><ul><li>Symptoms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The symptoms seen in vines over six years old. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Younger vines can be infected but will not exhibit symptoms for two to four years. </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. Eutypa Dieback – Vegetative Symptoms <ul><li>The most obvious signs appear in the spring when healthy shoots are 12-24 inches long. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Shoots will appear deformed and discolored. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Young leaves will appear smaller, cupped and chlorotic. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They may develop small necrotic spots and tattered margins. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not obvious later in the growing season. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Leaf symptoms become more pronounced each year until the infect portion of the vine dies. </li></ul></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  28. 28. Eutypa Dieback - Symptoms <ul><li>The earliest symptom is a canker that develops around old pruning wounds on the older wood of the main trunk. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A flattened area may be observed on the trunk indicating the canker under the bark. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Removing the bark reveals a defined discolored area of wood bordered by white, healthy wood. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fruit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The fruit of infected vines do not exhibit many symptoms. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clusters on infected shoots may have a mixture of small and large berries. </li></ul></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  29. 29. Eutypa Dieback - Disease Cycle <ul><li>Survives over many years in the trunks of infected living vines and dead grape wood. </li></ul><ul><li>When free water is available, in early spring, spores are released. </li></ul><ul><li>Germinates within 11-12 hours when the temperature reaches 68-77 o F. </li></ul><ul><li>Symptoms develop after several growing seasons. </li></ul>
  30. 30. Eutypa Dieback - Control Strategies <ul><li>Pruning </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Due to the pathogen viability it is important to prune during dormant season. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prune below the canker or discolored wood. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If the canker extends below the soil line, the entire vine should be removed to ensure removal of the pathogen. </li></ul><ul><li>There are not currently any eutypa dieback specific fungicides, organic or conventional, available on the market. </li></ul>
  31. 31. Grape Phomopsis cane and leaf spot - Overview <ul><li>A growing disease in the Midwest. </li></ul><ul><li>In some states 30% crop loss has been reported in one growing season. </li></ul><ul><li>Most crop loss is due to infection of the rachis and the berry. </li></ul>
  32. 32. Grape Phomopsis cane and leaf spot – Vegetative Symptoms <ul><li>Shoot </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Chlorotic spots with dark centers spread over infected tissue. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>May make the shoots susceptible to wind damage, but they do not directly cause crop loss. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extremely important source of inoculum for cluster and fruit infections in the spring. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Leaf </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Small, light green or chlorotic spots with dark green centers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Puckered along the veins. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Dark brown spots can also appear along primary or secondary veins and petioles. </li></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  33. 33. Grape Phomopsis cane and leaf spot – Fruit Symptoms <ul><li>Most susceptible in early spring. </li></ul><ul><li>Green fruits appear normal with the pathogen remaining latent. </li></ul><ul><li>At ripening the pathogen becomes active causing the fruit to rot. </li></ul><ul><li>Turns light brown and shrivels, resembling black rot infected fruit. </li></ul>http://plant-disease.ippc.orst.edu/disease.cfm?RecordID=515.00000
  34. 34. Grape Phomopsis cane and leaf spot - Disease Cycle <ul><li>Overwinters on infected wood between one and three years old. </li></ul><ul><li>Spores washed or splashed to developing shoot tips. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Germinate when temperatures are between 34-90 o F. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Infection takes place within a few hours. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Symptoms appear within 21-30 days. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If there are successive cool, wet springs, the inoculum will build up. </li></ul><ul><li>Pathogen tends to spread within a vine, not from vine to vine. </li></ul><ul><li>Spread of phomopsis is normally caused by transportation of infected or contaminated propagation materials or nursery stock. </li></ul>
  35. 35. Grape Phomopsis cane and leaf spot - Control Strategies <ul><li>Aeration </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pick a vineyard location with good air circulation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use appropriate pruning and training systems. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Prune out and destroy any diseased parts from the vines or vineyard floor, during dormant season. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Burn, bury or disc infected plant material. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Spray </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Spring foliar applications if rainfall is predicted after budbreak. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sprays should be applied before the first rain after budbreak, before shoot length reaches 0.5 inches and again when shoots reach 5 inches in length. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contact materials, such as copper or sulfur, may need to be reapplied after significant rainfall </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Currently no specific fungicides approved for organic growing. </li></ul>
  36. 36. Powdery Mildew - Overview <ul><li>Powdery Mildew is an important disease of grapes in Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><li>Can reduce vine growth and yield. </li></ul><ul><li>Affects fruit quality and winter hardiness. </li></ul><ul><li>Symptoms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Left untreated on the berry it can destroy entire clusters. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Foliar infections can reduce photosynthesis causing reduced Brix levels and vine growth. </li></ul></ul>
  37. 37. Powdery Mildew – Vegetative Symptoms <ul><li>Leaf </li></ul><ul><ul><li>White or grayish-white patches on the upper and lower surface of leaf, spread to cover upper surface. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Uninfected cells, next to infection sites, may become necrotic. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Leaves may dry out and prematurely drop. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When young leaves are infected they will become distorted and stunted as they expand. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Shoots & Stems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Young, infected shoots develop dark brown lesions that remain as brown patches on the dormant stems. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Petioles and cluster stems become brittle and break during the growing season. </li></ul></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  38. 38. Powdery Mildew – Fruit Symptoms <ul><li>Flower </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Blossom clusters can become infected causing flowers to drop. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Berry </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Highest level of economic loss. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Small spots, similar to the leaves. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Covered by the white, powdery growth. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can kill the epidermal cells of the berry. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Splitting opens the fruit to secondary bunch rot infections . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>May develop a netlike pattern of scar tissue over the surface. </li></ul><ul><li>Berries are susceptible to infections from bloom through a few weeks after bloom. </li></ul>http://sdgrapes.sdstate.edu/grapesd.cfm
  39. 39. Powdery Mildew - Disease Cycle <ul><li>Overwinters in bark crevices on the grape vine. </li></ul><ul><li>In the spring airborne spores are discharged. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>With an average of 0.10 inch of rain and an air temperature of 50 o F within 4-8 hours. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carried by wind to any green surface of the growing vine. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The first infections are often observed as individual colonies growing on leaves closest to the bark. </li></ul><ul><li>Need high relative humidity, 40%-100%, rather than free rain to spread infection. </li></ul>
  40. 40. Powdery Mildew - Control Strategies <ul><li>General control practices </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Site selection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pruning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vineyard Sanitation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Timing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor susceptible cultivars, particularly V . vinifera cultivars , regularly. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Start monitoring just prior to bloom through fourteen days after bloom. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Late season monitoring should be done when heavy dew or foggy weather is prevalent. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sulfur products starting at budbreak. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They need to be applied every seven days or reapplied whenever they are washed off by rain or irrigation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There are various oils, biofungicides and soaps used to control powdery mildew. </li></ul></ul>
  41. 41. Botrytis Bunch Rot - Overview <ul><li>Common problem for most small fruit growers in Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><li>Grape cultivars commonly grown in Minnesota tend to show resistance. </li></ul><ul><li>The greatest losses found in tight-clustered varieties of V. vinifera and French Hybrids. </li></ul><ul><li>Known as both vulgar rot and noble. </li></ul>http://bigblondeblog.blogspot.com/2006/05/history-of-alcohol.html
  42. 42. Botrytis Bunch Rot – Vegetative Symptoms <ul><li>The first symptoms observed in early spring on buds and young shoots. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>May turn brown and dry out. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Before bloom, leaves may exhibit large, irregular, reddish brown, necrotic patches. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A gray mold may or may not be observed on the leaf. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If flowers are infected, before bloom, they will wither or dry out and fall off the vine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Girdling of the rachis causes any berries below the infection site to wither and drop off. </li></ul></ul>http://plant-disease.ippc.orst.edu/disease.cfm?RecordID=514.00000
  43. 43. Botrytis Bunch Rot – Fruit Symptoms <ul><li>Most common infection. </li></ul><ul><li>After veraison , grapes are infected through the epidermis or wounds. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Develops faster in tight clusters where berries are compressed together.   </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Infected berries will appear in late summer. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Small brown spots on maturing berries </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The skin may slip off easily when rubbed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If the weather is dry the grapes will dry out. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wet weather will cause them to burst. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Photo by Jay W. Pscheidt, Oregon State University </li></ul></ul>
  44. 44. Botrytis Bunch Rot – Disease Cycle <ul><li>Overwinters on debris in the vineyard floor or vine. </li></ul><ul><li>Later in the season, hyphae will penetrate directly through the epidermis of the berries that were not infected during bloom. </li></ul><ul><li>Wounds caused by insects, powdery mildew, hail or birds greatly help to facilitate infection. </li></ul><ul><li>After infecting the berry, Botrytis may stay dormant until the fruit sugar content increases and the acid level decreases. </li></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/b919/0010.html
  45. 45. Botrytis Bunch Rot – Control Strategies <ul><li>Minimize humidity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Select a site where vines are exposed to sun all day. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Utilize pruning and training systems to improve air circulation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid applying excessive nitrogen that will stimulate lush growth. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remove leaves around the grape cluster at shatter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Proper weed control and good soil drainage. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Choose resistant cultivars, such as Frontenac and Frontenac Gris </li></ul><ul><li>Spray timing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The first spray is at the end of bloom or the beginning of fruit set. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The second application is just before berry touch. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The third is at the start of veraison, and the last is three weeks before harvest if rain is expected. </li></ul></ul>
  46. 46. Botrytis Bunch Rot – Noble Rot <ul><li>Under specific climatic conditions Botrytis cinerea is known as the noble rot.. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Temperature needs to be between 68-77 o F (20-25 o C) during the infection phase. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relative humidity needs to be between 85-95%. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Once the infection has occurs the relative humidity needs to drop down to 60% - Key to creating Noble Rot. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Botrytis cinerea creates many changes within the berry. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The mycelium penetrates the grape skin allowing the berry to dry. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This dehydration leads to a concentration of sugars. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The osmotic pressure inside the berry causes the metabolic activity of the pathogen to decrease enabling vintners to create the sweet botrytised wine. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The mold consumes 35-45% of the sugar from the berry, but overall concentration increases due to dehydration. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tartaric and malic acids are metabolized, increasing the pH of the must. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It also destroys aroma components, such as terpenes and phenolic compounds, which make it detrimental to red wine production. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Special techniques need to be used by the vintners. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ferments much slower </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Skin contact should be very minimal to avoid contact with any secondary molds. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is necessary to continually monitor the volatile acidity during and after fermentation to protect the wine from oxidation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The high-density of the juice makes it difficult to clarify the wine </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unlike other wines, it is racked every three months for one year. It is then fined at the end of the first and second year. </li></ul></ul>

Anthracnose - Overview <ul><li>Grape anthracnose, also called bird’s-eye rot </li></ul><ul><li>Not a native pathogen to the U.S. </li></ul><ul><li>Anthracnose is economically important </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces fruit quality and yield, as well as weaken the vine. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Currently a minor problem in Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Prefers warm, humid climates. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Symptoms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lesions on shoots and berries, are most commonly observed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Infects the stems, leaves, tendrils, young shoots and berries. </li></ul></ul>
  48. 48. Anthracnose – Vegetative Symptoms <ul><li>Young shoots </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Small isolated lesions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can cause shoots to crack and become brittle. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be confused with hail damage. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Look for raised black edges. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Young leaves are most susceptible to anthracnose. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Circular lesions with brown or black margins. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The center tissue will eventually drop out of the lesion creating a “shot-hole” appearance. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If veins are infected malformation or complete drying of the leaf will occur. </li></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/3000/3208.html http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/3000/3208.html
  49. 49. Anthracnose – Fruit Symptoms <ul><li>Berry clusters are susceptible before flowering through veraison. </li></ul><ul><li>Small, reddish circular spots. </li></ul><ul><li>The center of the lesion becomes whitish gray giving rise to “bird’s eye rot”. </li></ul><ul><li>Can causing cracking and opening the berry to secondary infections </li></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/3000/3208.html
  50. 50. Anthracnose - Disease Cycle <ul><li>Temperature and moisture are the key components in influencing disease development. (Higher the better) </li></ul><ul><li>Spreads through free water within 12 hours of rain. </li></ul><ul><li>Symptoms develop within 4-13 days, depending on temperature. </li></ul>
  51. 51. Anthracnose – Control Strategies <ul><li>Sanitation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Prune out and destroy any diseased parts from the vines or vineyard floor, during dormant season. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remove all wild grapes near the vineyard. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Act as an excellent source of inoculum and the disease can develop unnoticed. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Clear them from surrounding fence rows. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Spray Timing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A dormant application of liquid lime sulfur should be applied prior to bud break. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Followed by foliar applications of fungicides, every two weeks from bud break to veraison. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organic growers can use Lime Sulfur or copper sprays. </li></ul>
  52. 52. Bitter Rot - Overview <ul><li>Fungus creates a very bitter taste in infected berries </li></ul><ul><li>Not yet observed in Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>May become an issue for Minnesota growers as our climate changes. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Symptoms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easily confused with those of black rot. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Brown lesions only on ripe grapes , not on green grapes like black rot. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lesions spread around the berry, in concentric circles over a short period of time. </li></ul></ul>http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/3000/3032.html http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/3000/3032.html
  53. 53. Bitter Rot - Continued <ul><ul><li>Disease Cycle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Overwinters in plant debris in the vineyard. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fungal growth is favored by warm, humid, wet weather. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Control Strategies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sanitation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Clear all mummies from the ground after leaf drop or till them into the soil prior to bud break. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air Circulation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Utilize pruning and training systems to promote rapid leaf drying. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Full spray coverage and canopy penetration. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  54. 54. Sour Rot <ul><li>Not yet observed in Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>May become an issue for Minnesota growers as our climate changes. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Caused by various undesirable yeasts and bacteria rather than a single pathogen. </li></ul><ul><li>Impacts both grape yield and wine quality. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Infected grapes give an unpleasant, vinegary finish to wines and increases volatile acids. </li></ul></ul>
  55. 55. Sour Rot - Continued <ul><li>Symptoms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Grapes leak juice that smells like vinegar. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>White cultivars will appear brick colored and red cultivars will appear purple or brown. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Large numbers of fruit flies are common and will spread the infection to other clusters. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sour rot infection is favored by warm, humid, wet weather and tight clustered cultivars. </li></ul><ul><li>Control </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pruning and training systems to improve air circulation which promotes rapid leaf drying. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remove leaves between fruit set and veraison. </li></ul></ul>
