Michigan State University Extension is hosting a special meeting to discuss the grape mealybug pest issue, tobacco and tomato ringspot viruses, and grape leafroll virus. This will be held at Lemon Creek Winery on June 2 at 3 p.m. at Lemon Creek Winery, 533 E. Lemon Creek Rd., Berrien Springs, MI. Rufus Isaacs and Annemiek Schilder will be joining us. They will be discussing the identification, symptoms, life cycle and treatment of the mealybug and leafroll virus in southwest Michigan wine grape vineyards. We will also be discussing the symptoms, prevention and causative organism of the tobacco and tomato ringspot virus. Discussion will follow each speaker, so growers are encouraged to bring questions and observations.
