We are happy to announce the following speakers: Prof. Gerhard Pietersen (leafroll virus expert, South Africa), Dr. Marc Fuchs (red blotch virus expert, Cornell University), Dr. Kent Daane (mealybug expert, UCCE), and Dr. James Stamp (grapevine quality expert, CA). We’ll pass out FREE male mealybug traps (thanks to Suterra) and a VINE MEALYBUG MANAGEMENT booklet. This meeting is part of an outreach grant funded by the American Vineyard Foundation and the CDFA PD/GWSS Board (thank you!).
