Wayne Wilcox Receives ASEV-ES Award

The American Society for Enology and Viticulture-Eastern Section (ASEV-ES) is proud to announce Dr. Wayne Wilcox as the 2015 recipient of the ASEV-ES Outstanding Achievement Award.

Disease management is a critical component of viticulture east of the Rockies, and over his career Dr. Wilcox has delivered science-based guidelines that have allowed growers across the region to manage diseases more efficiently and sustainably. His in-depth knowledge of the biology of fungal pathogens has been key to improving the timing of management interventions over the course of the growing season.

A northern California native, Dr. Wilcox received his B.S. in Horticulture and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Plant Pathology, all from the University of California at Davis. Since 1984, he has been a professor at Cornell's New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva (Finger Lakes region), where he has led the grape pathology program for the past 21 years.

Dr. Wilcox will receive his award at the 40th Annual ASEV-ES Conference in Dunkirk, NY July 23-25, 2015, where he will give a presentation on "Mold & Mildews, Spots & Rots: Grape Pathology in the East."
