Megan Hall, speakerAfter 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.
