Downy Mildew (Plasmopara viticola) is a potentially devastating disease of grape vines in Australia with significant crop losses occurring in a short period of time if the disease is left untreated. Downy Mildew oospores germinate on wet dead leaves where the soil surface temperature is greater than 10°C. These spores over winter in the soil and leaf litter.

RIDOMIL GOLD® PLUS has long been established as the best fungicide available for the control of Downy Mildew. This is particularly true when seasonal conditions favour the development of this costly disease.

When you consider how much rainfall has occurred in many grape growing regions over the last month, it’s a good time to make sure you have a plan in place to control Downy Mildew before it is too late.
