Project Leader: Tim Wiegle, NYS IPM
Cooperators: Alice Wise, Suffolk County CCE, Long Island Grape Program, Hans Walter Peterson, Finger Lakes Regional Grape Program, Steve Hoying, Hudson Valley Lab, Tim Martinson, Statewide Extension Viticulture, CCE
The 2012 grape commodity survey was conducted in conjunction with Cornell Cooperative Extension's NYS IPM Program and Grape Programs in the main growing regions of New York State; Lake Erie, Finger Lakes, Long Island and the Hudson Valley. Traps were place in vineyards starting in the first week of June in all regions and were serviced biweekly 6 to 7 times depending on region. The four target moths involved in the survey are: European Grapevine Moth, False Codling Moth, Silver Y Moth, and the Light Brown Apple Moth. The CAPS project in grapes was able to report no target species were captured in each of the past three seasons, 2010, 2011 or 2012. This negative result can be used by exporters of New York State agricultural goods to respond to inquiries about these pests from those looking to import agricultural products.
