What is Pierce's Disease?

Pierce’s Disease is a bacterial infection, which is spread by bugs that feed on grapevines, particularly the "glassy winged sharpshooter." Grapevines that become infected with PD can quickly become sick and die.

Replicated field studies will be conducted to evaluate the impact of a factorial treatment arrangement of Admire. Glassy-winged sharpshooter populations will be monitored weekly using different methods. Surround studies.
