Survey for Grape Growers and Consultants Relative Disease Management Decisions

We are involved with a group of scientists who are reviewing several aspects of grape disease management, especially powdery mildew management (the FRAME Network).  If you have time, the FRAME Network wants to hear how you approach disease management decisions.  If you are a grape grower, or a consultant for grape production, please take the time to complete our surveys!

  • Grape Grower Survey For anyone who owns a vineyard, or manages a vineyard directly owned by their employer.
  • Grape Consultant Survey – For anyone providing recommendations for farms other than the ones directly owned by themselves or their employer.

Thanks for any help you can provide in helping us to better understand how you make decisions relative disease management.
