IPM

IPMGrape 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 menthods, 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.

In conjunction with Greg Loeb, Professor, Department of Entomology, NYSAES, two replicated spray trials using 4 insecticides currently registered for use on grapes in New York State (Admire Pro, Danitol 2.4 EC, Leverage 360 and Sniper) were conducted by NYS IPM Program and LERGP staff in grower vineyards in the Lake Erie region.

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.

Position Opening with Finger Lakes Grape Program

The FLGP is going to be hiring a new program assistant/technician in 2018. Gillian Trimber, our viticulture educator who has been with the Grape Program since September 2015, has decided to pursue some other opportunities, and will be leaving us at the end of December.

The new position will have a greater emphasis on assisting with field work than in the past, including setting up and maintaining field trials and demonstrations, data collection and data entry, and maintenance of the Teaching and Demonstration Vineyard. More information about the qualifications and duties of the position, along with information on how to apply, can be found at http://tiny.cc/ViticultureAideWDR0013103. The position will be posted until December 17, or until the position is filled. Please pass this information along to anybody that you think might be interested in the position.

Gillian will be helping us to finish up some final projects - including hosting a pruning workshop on Friday, December 8 (see Upcoming Events for more details) - and helping us to prepare for the transition to the new position. Her enthusiasm for Extension and the industry, her upbeat attitude, and her hard work have made her a tremendous asset for the Finger Lakes Grape Program over the past 2 years. I will miss having her as part of our team.
