Thunderstorm and rain event started around 5PM on 29th resulted in about 10 hours of estimated leaf wetness event with an average temperature of 68F. It was an infection event for Phomopsis, black rot, downy mildew, and Botrytis. It seems that many of us are experiencing uneven flowering this year. For example, some of our Merlot is almost BB size while others are still in bloom. If that is the case for you make sure to protect bloom against Botrytis. Also as you are aware, from bloom to 4-5 weeks after bloom is a critical period for black rot, downy mildew, and powdery mildew berry infection. It is very important to protect your clusters around this time of the season!
