Late-season Botrytis: webinar and key resources

Recent wet weather across a number of grapegrowing regions has led to conditions that are favourable to the development of Botrytis bunch rot. Botrytis outbreaks have been reported across regions in Victoria and NSW and further wet weather is forecast in other states.

To assist growers dealing with this issue, the AWRI has organised a panel-style webinar on Botrytis management for next Tuesday 9 February at 2.30pm central daylight time.

Panel members include two eminent plant pathologists, Dr Kathy Evans and Barbara Hall, and two highly experienced industry practitioners, Liz Riley and Warren Birchmore. Three presentations will be followed by a Q&A session. The webinar will include discussion of the short withholding period ‘biological’ fungicides.

Register now to attend this webinar. The recording will also be available on the AWRI’s YouTube channel following the webinar.

Useful resources on managing Botrytis include:
