Managing Botrytis in the winery – 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 winemakers dealing with Botrytis-affected fruit, the AWRI has organised a panel-style webinar on Botrytis management in the winery for Thursday 18 February at 11.30am central daylight time.

Panel members will include a mix of technical experts and industry practitioners, with short presentations followed by a Q&A session.

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-affected fruit include:
•    AWRI webpage on managing Botrytis
•    AWRI fact sheet: Managing Botrytis-infected fruit
•    Testing for laccase
