July’s Invasive Pest Webinar to Feature Fruit Flies and Their Role in Sour Rot

Register Today!

After a successful launch on June 3 of the invasive pests webinar series on the spotted lanternfly, the next presentation will feature fruit flies, specifically on their role in causing sour rot. Megan Hall, Assistant Research Professor in Plant Sciences at the University of Missouri, Columbia, will lead this webinar on Thursday, July 2, at noon (PDT).

Sour rot is a disease affecting winegrapes worldwide, caused by yeast, acetic acid bacteria and Drosophila fruit flies. Controlling fruit flies in the vineyard presents a substantial challenge, yet it is the best strategy for preventing sour rot development and spread. Understanding how fruit flies contribute to the sour rot complex will lead to more sustainable management strategies and better control of the disease.
