March 10, 2014 –
The 2014 New York and Pennsylvania Pest Management Guidelines for Grapes are now available at:
These will not be made available in an electronic format as has been done in previous years. The guidelines are
the best place to get IPM information for grapes in a single source, and every grape grower should have an
up-to-date copy. When I receive IPM-related calls, this will be my main resource, and I will reference it to
interested growers who should be looking at the same copy I have. Yes, there are quite a few differences when
applying the guide to cold climate (and generally less disease-susceptible) cultivars, but the material activity tables alone are worth the price.
