The latest Wine Australia research on inoculum dissemination has revealed that the seasonal spore release patterns of eutypa and botryosphaeria dieback pathogens varied between regions and pathogens. Rainfall was confirmed as the primary environmental factor that influenced the release of these pathogen spores. This article reports on preliminary results from spore traps located in four wine regions of Australia, and discusses the implications of these results on pruning and wound protection to manage grapevine trunk diseases.
