How to Manage Pests

Interactive Tools and Models:
Grape Powdery Mildew Risk Assessment Index

The grape powdery mildew risk assessment index (RAI) is useful for determining disease pressure and how often you need to spray to protect the vines. For information on how to use the RAI, see the pest management guideline.

Powdery mildew risk for stations in counties:
| Fresno | Madera | Amador | Calaveras | El Dorado | San Joaquin |
Choose year

RAIs are based on actual weather data for stations that take appropriate readings.

*   Bud break based on farm advisor countywide vineyard surveys:

  • Fresno: March 6 in Thompson Seedless
  • Madera: March 6 in Thompson Seedless
  • Amador: March 26 in Zinfandel
  • Calaveras: March 20 in Chardonnay
  • El Dorado: March 9 in Chardonnay
  • San Joaquin: February 28 in Chardonnay

S1 = missing data substituted with values from FIREBAUGH/ALISO-01.P
E = index was calcuated using previously substituted data

Because estimated data are included in the index, use reported RAI with caution. Interpret RAI using field surveys and your knowledge of the particular vineyard, along with additional weather data if you have it.
