CDFA Announces 2012 Pierce’s Disease Assessment Rate

CDFA Secretary Karen Ross has set the Pierce’s disease winegrape assessment for the 2012 harvest at $1.00 per $1,000 of value, based on the recommendation made by the PD/GWSS Board at its June board meeting.

The assessment is used to fund research to find a solution to Pierce’s disease (PD), and other activities related to the transmittal of PD, a bacterial disease vectored by the glassy-winged sharpshooter that kills grapevines.
