Modeling and monitoring how grapevines gain and lose cold hardiness

December 16, 2020

Modeling and monitoring how grapevines gain and lose cold hardiness

For the past 15 years, Brock University's VineAlert program has provided Ontario growers with up-to-date bud freezing temperatures and guidance on when to deploy wind machines to prevent winter injury. ARS scientist Jason Londo's research is dissecting processes governing bud hardiness - and resulting in more accurate models to predict bud hardiness from onsite temperature data. During the Modeling and Monitoring How Grapevines Gain and Lose Cold Hardiness live webinar, Jason and Jim will discuss their research and outreach programs and how they can help Eastern growers manage and sometimes prevent winter injury.

Spotted Lanternfly Found in Ithaca, NY

A population of spotted lanternfly (SLF) has been found in Ithaca, New York, just off the Cornell University campus.

They were found on their favorite host plant, another invasive species, tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima). However, SLF also feeds on many other trees and plants, which, unfortunately, includes grapevines. With New York State's important Finger Lakes grape-growing region and wine industries so close to Ithaca, state agencies and pest-control experts are particularly concerned about this pest's impact in the region.
