Did you catch Suterra on social media this week? Recap on our most recent posts for mating disruption information, grower tips and tricks and more in this new biweekly summary.

July 12: Oregon Mealybug Citizen Science

Oregon growers- did you know that you can help monitor the spread of mealybugs on a statewide scale? The Oregon Department of Agriculture wants YOU to submit your vine mealybug and Gill's mealybug sightings so agricultural professionals can better understand the spread of this vineyard pest throughout the state.
 
 Submit your sightings here.
 
 

July 14: SIP Certification

 
SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certified is one of the strictest sustainability certifications that wine growers can apply for- eligible wine growers must meet over 50 total requirements, including cover cropping, energy-efficient equipment, restrictions on high-risk pesticide use and more.
 
Suterra's ecologically-friendly mating disruption products fit well into a SIP Certified vineyard's pest management program, and we already provide service to several growers throughout California with the SIP Certified seal. Cheers!

July 26: Vine Management


Grapevine leafroll disease is no joke- once a vine is infected, the only way to eradicate the virus is to remove the infected vines, replant and start anew. Avoid this costly affliction by managing vine mealybug, the prime vector for GLD.
