Powdery mildew on grapes is one of the most common issues that gardeners, growers, and winery owners across the country must deal with. When a crop is attacked by powdery mildew the lifecycle of the plant is greatly threatened. With the ability to reduce vine growth, overall yield, fruit production and quality, and hardiness in the winter time, powdery mildew quickly becomes a financial threat for serious growers and gardeners. Winery owners will agree that a method to stop powdery mildew attacks before they start would provide a direct path to greater productivity, and thus, financial gain. 

Unfortunately, however, many of the elements critical to properly growing healthy grapes lend themselves to temperatures and seasonal factors that help powdery mildew to thrive. When temperatures reach anywhere from 68 to 77 degrees, this creates an optimal situation for powdery mildew diseases to develop. In addition, moisture and humidity from rainfall allow the fungal spores to flourish. As such, creating a method to remove powdery mildew on grapevines and prevent infestations from forming again is absolutely imperative, especially for winery owners looking to maintain a profitable business.

All of the green tissues of the grapevine are susceptible to powdery mildew attacks. Often appearing as grayish-white patches of fungal growth, the powdery mildew typically spreads to the grapes which become covered with white powdery mildew. As a result, the grapes are unable to color properly. When the fungal spores surface on the green shoots and leaves, the grapevine harvest is greatly compromised. When this occurs, winery owners have begun to turn to the product that Growers Trust, Powdery Mildew Killer.

Powdery Mildew Killer not only kills and destroys current outbreaks, but works to prevent future infestations from forming. As Powdery Mildew Killer destroys the fungal spores’ lifecycle, the plant cells are given nutrients from the organic composition of the product. In turn, the grapevines are able to flourish while having the power to fight back against powdery mildew attacks. Contact Growers Trust today to learn more!
