Grapevine Trunk Disease Research Findings in Oregon | Resultados de la investigación sobre las enfermedades de la madera de la vid en Oregon
This session will cover a summary of findings from three years of study on grapevine trunk diseases (GTDs). We will report on most frequent GTD pathogens prevalent in Oregon vineyards, timing of spore release by these pathogens, and a need to revisit GTD management under different climatic conditions.
