New York State Grapevine Health Initiative
Optimizing vineyard health for successful and sustainable production
In this project, biology undergraduates are surveying local wineries for grapevine diseases using standard techniques and state-of-the-art diagnostics. With support and guidance from winery staff, students report on the prevalence of infectious diseases, with the aim of developing an ongoing partnership that helps strengthen local enterprise while increasing the potential of sustainable agricultural practices.
