In August, the MRC lecture theatre filled with wine industry representatives keen to learn more about Grapevine Trunk Disease in a workshop presented by Dion Mundy, Senior Scientist with Plant & Food Research.
Dion’s colleague Rob Agnew, Scientist, Plant & Food Research, describes it as the “best attended science seminar that we have run for quite a few years”, which it indicates that trunk diseases are of particular interest to a lot of growers.
Approximately 80 people were present.
The Marlborough Express came along too. They published a terrific article on Dion’s work, leading the charge on how grape growers can control trunk disease.
Here is a link to the full article on stuff.
