Pierce’s Disease Research Symposium

12/17/2018 - 12/19/2018

The 2018 Pierce’s Disease Research Symposium will be held December 18 and 19, 2018, in San Diego, California.  Although the event is called the Pierce’s Disease Research Symposium, it also covers other pests and diseases of wine grapes, reflecting the expanding focus of the PD/GWSS Board.

Researchers and others from around the globe are expected to attend, to learn about recent advances and discoveries on Pierce’s disease and other pests and diseases. Together they share a common goal of finding effective, sustainable ways of protecting wine grapes from damage by these pests and diseases.

In connection with the symposium a compendium of research progress reports is being prepared. A call for reports was released recently, with reports due October 4, 2018.

Winegrape growers are encouraged to attend the Symposium as it is an excellent venue for researchers and growers to interact and for everyone to learn about the latest research, activities, and findings.
