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.

Evaluate the ability of hyper spectral imagery to identify grapevines affected by Pierce's disease in multiple vineyards after the onset of visible symptoms and as a data source of identifying affected plants early in the growing season.
