Webinar: Grapevine Red Blotch Disease: What You Need to Know Friday, February 26, 2016. Summary: Grapevine red blotch disease and the virus associated with it has been confirmed in many major grape production regions of the United States and Canada. Since the identification of the virus in 2011, several teams of researchers from across North America have been intensely characterizing the disease and effects on grapevines, as well as characterizing the virus, its spread, and potential management. Considerable progress has been made, but much remains unknown. Speakers representing many of these labs will be presenting their work and what it means for the grape industry.
