Tenth Spray of the 2013 Season

Unreal. STILL having huge downy mildew pressure due to all the rain. Had to go through all the reds (they seem more susceptible to downy?) and spray them with oxidate, then wait until the afternoon for the additional spray.

Morning
Oxidate = 1 gal per 165 gal (a little light actually but didn't have enough)

Afternoon
Pristine = 10.5 oz per acre
Prophyt = 2 pints per acre (wish I had more)

2013 Frost Damage

Well, we fared pretty well last night considering how badly some of our colleagues were hit by the frost. I estimate we lost about 50% of our Sauvignon Blanc, about 25% of our Blaufrankisch, and about 10% of the remaining Viognier, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Pretty interesting that the preventative spray I applied yesterday actually worked, as there were areas of the vineyard where a shoot was behind a post (and did not receive the spray) and was destroyed, whereas the shoot next to it that did receive the spray was fine. Totally worth the effort!
