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.

Spotted Lanternfly Update

While there are currently no known infestations in New York State we continue to find spotted lanternfly (SLF) hitchhiking into New York State.  As you can see in the map below, SLF has been reported in 11 New York counties.  Because there are no know infestation our current management strategy is based on proper identification and reporting spottedlanternfly@dec.ny.gov.   The current life stage(s) to be vigilant for are egg masses (photo).  Spotted lanternfly appear to be willing to lay their eggs on any surface so it is important to be vigilant in inspecting anything coming out of the quarantined areas.  First instar nymphs will be emerging soon and can be identified by the white spots on their black bodies.

Announcements

Loaner Sensor Program

The loaner sensor program is an outreach program designed to introduce interested growers to the technology developed by the Efficient Vineyard researchers. It involves a technician from the Lake Erie Regional Grape Program coming out to the farm to install or attach scanners and computers to existing equipment. The subsequent data collection is then completed during normal activity such as pesticide spraying. Once the data is collected it can be sent back to researchers to generate a prescription map. The DualEM soil sensor requires a technician to operate so if you would like to have a soil scan done of your vineyard, please contact the Portland, NY Cornell Extension office and make an appointment.
