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 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 Found in Ithaca

Spotted Lanternfly Found in Ithaca

Spotted lanternly (SLF) adults and egg masses were found in Ithaca recently. While a few lone adults have been found in the area before, this is the first confirmed case of egg masses being found in the Finger Lakes. The proximity of this population to the region's vineyards makes this find even more concerning. While SLF is not active during the dormant season, there are some things growers can do this winter (2020-21) in response to this find. Read the article and attached .pdf for more information.

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.
