Webinar Summary
Over the past two seasons scale numbers have been notable across regions in SA with the problem being raised by growers in Langhorne Creek and the Adelaide Hills. AGWA has funded a project in Langhorne Creek under its regional funding scheme to provide assistance to growers on monitoring and managing scale in the vineyard. In the first year of the project (2014-15), two sites were selected and four products (Movento, Applaud, Transform and BioPest) were trialled. In addition to the trial, eight other sites were monitored to investigate species of scale present in the vineyard and the life cycle of the scale.

The webinar will cover:
• Results from the trial.
• Information on the life cycle of the scale
• How to monitor for scale in the vineyard.
• The impact of scale on the vineyard.
