It was nice and warm weekend, but…

At Winchester, we had four nights (6/4-6/7/09) with average temperature above 55F and average relative humidity in 90% or more. During last night, average temperature was about 69F, and average relative humidity was little low, but still around 80% range. These warm humid nights favor downy mildew fungus to produce spores.

With rain events in weather forecast, downy mildew would be a major concern as I noted in the previous post. Please review your vineyard situations (as I went through in the previous post), and be prepared. Hopefully, rain does not hit us as in forecast, but you never know.
