GRAPEVINE LEAFROLL DISEASE SYMPOSIUM 2.0 "
FREEBORN HALL

June 2, 2009

Recent research and field observations suggest that grapevine leafroll disease has become a more serious problem in California vineyards than previously recognized, and not solely graft-transmitted under California conditions as had been assumed. California grape growers are concerned about what may be an epidemic wave of leafroll disease spread. Following up on the 2008 international grapevine leafroll symposium, researchers with active programs targeted on this issue will present their latest information. Learn about grapevine leafroll disease and discuss the findings and their implications with this knowledgeable set of experts.

Speakers will include: Dr. Deborah Golino, Cooperative Extension Specialist, Department of Plant Pathology, UC Davis; Dr. Adib Rowhani, Project Scientist/Plant Pathologist, Foundation Plant Services, UC Davis; Dr. Dr. Kent M. Daane, Cooperative Extension Specialist, Department of Environmental Science, Policy, & Management, UC Berkeley; Dr. Rodrigo Almeida, Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental Science, Policy, & Management, UC Berkeley,; Rhonda Smith, UCCE viticulture advisor, Sonoma County; Andy Walker, Professor, UC Davis.
