Downy confirmed in Blewitt Springs - UPDATE 2/1/2009



A low level of oilspots has been found in Blewitt Springs, near Schuller Rd. This confirms the weather was suitable in at least some parts of the district to caused a 10:10:24 Primary event.
This is not a serious concern and no action is required. It is very late in the season and fruit is immune to infection.
One of these spots was tagged for future inspection. The others are being propagated for growers to see.
Interestingly another vineyard monitored nearby had no signs of Downy oilspots.
