PD EXTENSION BILL. FWC & CAWG to co-sponsor
The Pierce's Disease Control Program runs on five year cycles and is renewed through a grower referendum. The program, which controls the spread of the Glassy-winged Sharpshooter from the infected counties, responds to new outbreaks, and conducts comprehensive research into a solution for the vine-killing disease, will sunset in 2016 unless extended.
The boards of Family Winemakers of California and the California Association of Winegrape Growers, after assessing the control aspects of the program and investigating the status of the research effort, are supporting legislation in 2014 to give growers an opportunity to vote in 2015 for an extension. The PD statute also authorizes the designation of other pests and diseases for research and outreach funding. (Posted November 26, 2013)
