Grape Rootstock Survey (two questions) Reminder

Dr. Paul Severns and I have a graduate student, Katherine Martin, working on nematodes of wine grapes. We have a quick two-question survey relative rootstocks and scions in Georgia wine grape vineyards. If you have not done so already, please consider filling out this survey. It really is a very quick one, and it will help our collective cause. We will use this information to develop information relative rootstocks and nematode issues in Georgia — especially for replants. Feel free to take the survey, even if you are not in Georgia, but please indicate your county and state also. All responses will be kept confidential. The survey link is below.
