Vinehealth Australia acknowledges that managing a situation where you believe one or more endemic diseases, such as downy mildew and powdery mildew, are being introduced into your vineyard from an abandoned or neglected neighbouring vineyard is uncomfortable and challenging, and generally only becomes a concern in years of high disease pressure.

The information in this Industry Notice may help you determine a possible course of action to manage this issue.
