Over the 2 days, Mary outlines the conventional way we traditionally manage most diseases and the consequences of doing so. It becomes very obvious that the practices are not only costly but, in the end, only cause more problems.
We are then presented with the good news of alternative disease management methods which Mary documents thoroughly with first-hand evidence of the benefits of developing healthy soil.
Her thorough knowledge of botrytis seen here has been gained from years of experience working with and teaching viticulturalists.
The VIDEOS produced by Farming Secrets present practical management advice and scientific explanation of disease cycles for all farmers including those in the wine industry.
