This project demonstrated how reduced-risk pesticides can provide effective insect and disease management and how they can be incorporated into commercial grape production. In demonstration vineyards, reduced-risk and standard broad-spectrum pesticide programs provided similar pest and disease control. Scouting information was collected each week and summarized in biweekly reports that were published in MSU Extension Grape News and are now archived at www.grapes.msu.edu. Information on managing late season insect pests and diseases were presented at in-season grape workshops and extension meetings, and we also shared results from our research and demonstration activities at winter meetings in southwest and northwest Michigan.
