Dear Dion

Thank you for contacting me to develop a customized pest, weed and disease spray plan for your Rapaura Vineyard on Selmes road.
The implications of managing a vineyard extend beyond the simple timing and requirements of a spray program. For this reason I have included relevant information to grape growing and the viticultural management of the property. I have also included a number of references and links to useful research, existing member organisations and labour contracting services. You will find the greatest help from the following sources:



Diseases and Pests – P. Nicholas, P. Magarey an d M. Wachtel; Wine Titles



The Australian and New Zealand Field Guide to diseases, pests and disorders of grapes – P. Magarey, A. MacGregor, M. Wachtel and M. Kelly; Wine Titles



Sunlight into Wine, A handbook for Wine grape canopy management - R. Smart, M. Robinson; Wine Titles



New Zealand Wine – http://www.nzwine.com/



Plant and Food Research - http://www.plantandfood.co.nz/



Various Industry events such as Romeo Bragato an d Grape Days will have recent industry research and grower information.

Kind regards

Lara Campbell
