Establishing the best IPM practices in Michigan vineyards has been researched for a number of

years and it constantly a moving target. This proposal aimed at developing extension materials

and delivery mechanisms that improve upon MSU’s outreach efforts in grapes and provide a

mechanism for developing sustainability metrics for Michigan’s wine grape industry. The

purpose of this proposal was to optimize MSU’s communication of the best cultural, biological

and chemical control strategies in commercial vineyards. We focused on best management

practices of vineyards as well conducted surveys to identify grower issues to direct our research

and extension programs at MSU.
