Research funded by Wine Australia is examining whether the timing of winter pruning of grapevines influences the susceptibility of wounds to infection by trunk disease pathogens. Preliminary results indicate that regardless of the pruning time, wounds are typically most susceptible to infection by spores of the pathogens in the two weeks after pruning, while susceptibility to the three trunk pathogens tested differed.
