When walking my vineyard today I noticed that some of my Niagra have rust color spots on their leaves. It is only on some of the vines. I will try to get a picture this afternoon to post. Meanwhile can anyone tell me what the problem might be from and how to treat the problem.

Thanks so much,

You had better post some pictures. Could be anything from black rot, downy mildew, copper burn, herbacide drift, etc.

Spray with an all purpose fungicide.

Hello Sharon,

Would you happen to have those pics so we can look at your vines? I have some spotty and "not so healthy" leaves as well. I'm not sure if the person who farms our ground near my vines may have had a little "drift" of the chemicals he sprayed on the field next to my vines.

We'll see though.

Cheers,
joel
