IPM

IPM
Grape growers benefit from implementing IPM - environmentally and economically sensible ways to protect crops from insects, plant diseases, weeds, and vertebrate pests.  We work with grape processors, growers, local extension educators, faculty, crop consultants, and agricultural businesses to find IPM answers, develop new IPM methods, and deliver IPM information.
 
NYS IPM Program Mission: The New York State Integrated Pest Management Program develops sustainable ways to manage pests and helps people to use methods that minimize environmental, health and economic risks.

Using NEWA Resources in a Vineyard IPM Strategy

Using NEWA Resources in a Vineyard IPM Strategy

Historically, control practices for vineyard pests in the eastern United States were made based on the calendar or on a growth stage such as bud break, bloom or verasion using materials with a broad spectrum of activity. This was a fairly straightforward approach to pest management, and for many years this type of spray program was very effective. However, as the nation became more conscious of pesticide use, the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) was introduced, and broad spectrum pesticides were either restricted in their usage, grapes were removed from the label, or were banned completely. In the recent past, we have seen more choices in fungicides and insecticides come on the market, but the trend is now toward less toxic and narrower spectrum pesticides.

Lake Erie Grapes in the News

The recent below zero temperatures we have across the Lake Erie grape belt has brought a renewed interest to grape production in the area, especially the impact on the cold sensitive wine varieties. Use the station links below to see the LERGP's Luke Haggerty discussing the cold temperatures effects on bud mortality across the region with reporters from Channel 4 and Channel 7 in Buffalo, NY.
