Sarah Atwood, with Inphatec, will give a short talk and demonstration of their new technology for Pierce’s disease management. The demonstration will take place at 11:00 a.m. till noon on Monday the 28th of February at Cenita Vineyards (591 Dock Dorsey Road, Cleveland, GA). This is low key, but please visit if you are interested in learning more about this recently registered technology for grapes. It involves injecting phage (virus) into the plant to kill the bacterium that causes Pierce’s disease. Note that we are not promoting this technology, as it has not yet been tested under Georgia conditions. However, this will be a great opportunity to discuss the product and its potential utility. Thanks to Greg Crumbley for hosting and to Nathan Eason for help in planning.
