    Crown gall?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Crown gall?

    So whatever this is, it crumbles. It’s attached to the outside of the trunk at every nodule.

    Crown gall?

    Well I know I don’t have any snails in the vineyard. I have tons in my flower beds. I have torn out all my Baco vines. I feel they were prone to frost damage, thus the gall damage.

    Help needed with choosing a variety: Prairie Star vs. E.S. 10-18-14

    I will let you know. I planted Prairie Star three years ago and will finally make wine with it this year. It is a different grape, not vigorous, in Utah’s heat anyway. They like top wire cordon training as well, they like to drape. I planted it to blend with my Seyval. I’ve drank wine made...

    Crown gall?

    I really am interested in the soil drench method, and soaking the vines in Actinovate. I will do this when I plant my new vines this spring. One thing I noticed is that the gall started with one vine and seemed to spread to the vines next to it. I Have never had a spray program of any sort...

    Perfect Vaccine for the times and a serendipitous event.

    Welcome. This is one marvelous group. My best advise is to ask a lot of questions. There is always more than one way to do something and someone here has usually tried both ways. Have fun!

    Baco Noir and Seyval Blanc in Utah

    So I'm about to retire and take over my vineyard in Utah again. Baco has suffered terribly in my absence. My intention is to rip them up and replace them. My daughter is now involved and we have had some lengthy discussions as to what variety to replace them with. I believe we will add...

    Crown gall?

    I am about to replace 36 Baco vines due to crown gall. I tried to start new shoots, but they all came up stunted and with a lot of leaf curl. Im tired of fighting it. Discussion with Triple A led me to believe Baco suffers to much frost damage each spring here in Utah and the reason for crown...

    Crown Gall

    Well, I'm Back! I have been in California finishing my career and now am back in my vines in Utah. I have a big problem with crown gall in my Baco's. I've lost at least half of them and the bacteria seems to be creeping into the vineyard. I know only what I read on the internet, and that's...

    Baco Noir and Seyval Blanc in Utah

    Glad to hear your vines like Utah. Baco Noir grows like crazy. I planted them because of the clay soil I have. I hedge them and they make good red wine. Yes I fly back in spring and do the pruning. They are well established but I wish they could get better care. Of course no one loves them...

    Baco Noir and Seyval Blanc in Utah

    Grapes are doing well. I’ve had a real tough time with people spraying herbicide that wilts my vines. I have planted a few more whites, Prairie Star and Chardenelle, all seem to be doing well. If you plant vinifera you will have to spray. Downy mildew is terrible on the one Chardonnay vine I...

    Well, no turning back now.

    Last year i had a sprinkler on each corner. I bought this new sprinkler for my pasture, and tried it this spring. I saw no difference. Yes there is always a spot that won't get hit, but it worked great. I lost maybe ten shoots on 72 vines.

    Well, no turning back now.

    Yes, there's a lot of ice and ice sickles.
  20. mgmarty

    Well, no turning back now.

    So I have something similar to this I wait till it hits 34 degrees, than turn it on. I run it till the sun comes up, and it's above 34 degrees again. I have had really good luck.
