Leaf Botrytis - UPDATE 4/10/2011

Leaf botrytis.
In long periods of wet weather, botrytis can infect the dead and dying parts of young stems, and leaves damaged by wind and hail. The resulting leaf symptoms can have a brown colour.

The appearance of leaf and stem botrytis doesn't mean that we will get botrytis at harvest, but it does show that recent weather is conductive to it.
