2011 Highlights: UC IPM Annual Report

Vineyard pest managers harvest new materials

Vineyard pest managers harvest new materials

With the new Vineyard Pest identification and Monitoring Cards, growers, vineyard managers, pest control advisors, and field workers can look for and identify a wide variety of insects, mites, plant diseases, weeds, and natural enemies. 

The key to grape IPM is knowing what pests are in the vineyard. This pocket-sized deck of laminated cards is perfect to take to the field and serves as a quick reference about monitoring pests and what they look like. Excellent close-up color photographs—244 in all—support descriptions of each life stage, while monitoring tips tell when, where, and what to look for.

Authors and IPM advisors Lucia Varela and Walter Bentley hope field crews will have easy access to the cards so they can point out important pests when they see them. “Vineyard workers are the eyes of the growers, and they can be the first to see a pest,” Varela said.
