Effective spray application remains critical in a successful vineyard to ensure pests and disease are managed. A series of spray application workshops will be held across Victoria and South Australia in October to deliver key information for effective spray application. Andrew Landers (Cornell University, USA) and Alison MacGregor (SunRise21, Australia) will present the latest information on:

  • Getting the most out of your sprayer
  • Management of grapevine disease
  • New technologies and innovation in spray application

The day will also include a practical demonstration of spray application assessment and how to improve spray penetration and coverage. Changed regulations have resulted in changes to some chemical labels and obligations for spray applicators. These will also be discussed.

Breakfast and morning tea will be provided. A $10 registration fee applies to cover catering.

RSVP: Wednesday 19 October 2016

The AWRI is collaborating with Wine Australia to support these workshops. For more information, contact Adrian Loschiavo at the AWRI on 08 8313 6600 or [email protected].
