The 3rd edition of Grape Pest Management is a comprehensive, easy-to-read pest management tool; paired it with the pack of 50 sturdy, pocket-size laminated Vineyard ID Cards and you're well equipped to identify and manage most common problems.
The new edition of Grape Pest Management, the first in over a decade, includes several new invasive species that are now major pests. It also reflects an improved understanding among researchers, farmers, and growers about the biology of pests. Nine expansive chapters and helpful, colorful photos throughout.
The cards cover 41 common insects and mites, 11 diseases, 23 beneficial insects, and a variety of other disorders, weeds, and invertebrate pests. Each pest is identified by a description and excellent close-up color photographs—244 photos in all. On the reverse of each card is a description of the various life stages and monitoring tips.
A sturdy rivet keeps the set together so individual cards don’t stray.
