Grape Commodity Survey

Grants and Contracts Details


This survey will allow us to target 4 pests of concern in the 14 vineyards included in the survey. The establishment of any of these pests would have large negative impacts on the state's grape industry. Kentucky''s winemakers are eager to cooperate with us in our efforts to protect this important commodity from invasive pests. • The Cooperator seeks to conduct a program which is expected to result in: • The safeguarding of Kentucky’s grape industry from this suite of pests. • Preventing these insects from becoming established in Kentucky. • Early detection and a rapid response if any of these pests are detected through this survey. • The entry of positive/negative data into the NAPIS database We will collect survey data detailing the presence/absence of these pests in the vineyards. Five University of Kentucky employees and one independent contractor will conduct this survey by setting the traps, monitoring the traps and changing lures as needed once per month, submitting samples, and removing traps. They will also be conducting the visual survey. The survey will begin in late spring 2021 and continue throughout the summer. We estimate 5 total site visits including trap set, trap/lure monitoring and sample collection, and final sample collection/trap removal as well as the visual survey during each visit.
