- Fruits: grapes
- Education and Training: farmer to farmer, on-farm/ranch research
- Pest Management: field monitoring/scouting, integrated pest management, traps
- Sustainable Communities: sustainability measures
This project, the sixth in a series, continues to explore the sustainable control of this pest specific to vineyards in the eastern U.S. In this phase, mating disruption will be tested to see where it fits into the research results compiled over past years, which indicates that pheromone trap color and style can have an effect on how well the trap works. The overarching goal is to see if a sufficient number of traps results in mating disruption that allows for control of this difficult pest. Outreach will be through grower meetings, proceedings and publications, and through presentations as conferences and professional gatherings.
