Control program for the grape root borer in grape vineyards of the eastern United States



Control program for the grape root borer in grape vineyards of the eastern United States



Down to Earth 43(2): 10-12



All commercial grapes are susceptible to Vitacea polistiformis. Bunch grape cultivars such as Concord and Niagara (Vitis labrusca) and V. vinifera cultivars are more susceptible than muscadine grapes (V. rotundifolia). Symptoms, which include reduced growth, smaller leaves, fewer bunches and smaller berry size, may not be noticed for 5 years. Cultural control measures include good site selection, weed control, optimum fertilization and irrigation, and mounding.
