Winegrape Commission presents Varela with viticulture award

The Sonoma County Winegrape Commission presented its 2011 Viticulture Award of Excellence to UC IPM Advisor Lucia Varela in June. The award recognizes people who have made significant contributions to the commission, Sonoma County viticulture, and the greater wine community.

Varela has been responsible for developing IPM programs for pears, apples, and winegrapes in North Coast counties for almost 20 years. Among her many contributions, Varela has regularly taught pest and predator identification and IPM practices in the Sonoma County Grape Growers Association/Winegrape Commission Employee Development Program and has shared her research results at numerous grower events in the county.
