Who Am I?

Grape leafhoppers spend winter in plant debris around the vineyard until springtime when temperatures increase significantly. Grape leafhoppers feed on wild weeds shortly before they swarm into vineyards after bud break and as new green foliage appears.

In general, nymphs and adults are similar and both are sap-sucking insects that pierce into the soft tissues of plants. Grape leafhoppers feeding can lead to a wide spectrum of symptoms that vary from one variety to another, such as tiny yellow or white dots on leaves, curling or folding of leaves, yellowing of leaf edges, and even decreased rates of plant growth. It is important to note that as the season progresses, late-ripening varieties are more susceptible to grape leafhoppers.

Many leafhopper species can transmit important plant diseases such as Pierce’s disease (xylella fastidiosa) and different phytoplasmas comprising the “Grapevine Yellows” complex, such as bois noir (blackwood disease) and flavescence dorée. It is difficult to differentiate between leafhopper species with eyesight.

Control Measures

समय-निर्धारण : आरंभिक अवस्थाओं में संक्रमण से बचना अधिक सरल और किफ़ायती होता है खेत की नियमित रूप से देख-रेख करें और उपरोक्त चिन्हों को खोजें।

स्वच्छता : खरपतवारों, पौधे के अवशेषों, क्षतिग्रस्त भागों, अवांछित पौधों की वृद्धि, और आस-पास के खेती न किये गये क्षेत्रो और असुरक्षित पोधों को हटा कर आस-पास के क्षेत्र साफ रखें।

विश्व के एक अथवा अधिक भागों में प्रयोग किये जाने वाले उत्पादों में निम्न सामग्रियाँ हो सकती हैं :

फ़्लोनिकामिड्, बुप्रोफ़ेज़िन, सल्फ़ोक्साफ्लोर,इमिदाक्लोप्रिद, थियमेतोक्साम्, क्लोथियनिदिन्, बिफ़ेन्त्रिन्, डेल्टामेट्रीन, च्लोर्प्य्रिफ़ोस्, और डाइमेथोएट

नीम तेल और खनिज तेल

*Names marked in red are considered to be highly poisonous to beneficial insects.

*Names marked in green are considered to be organic and IPM (integrated pest management) compatible.

Caution and careful notice should be taken when using any plant protection products (insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides). It is the grower’s sole responsibility to keep track of the legal uses and permissions with respect to the laws in their country and destination markets. Always read the instructions written on labels, and in a case of contradiction, work in accordance to the product label. Keep in mind that information written on the label usually applies to local markets. Pest control products intended for organic farming are generally considered to be less effective in comparison to conventional products. When dealing with organic, biologic, and to some extent a small number of conventional chemical products, a complete eradication of a pest or disease will often require several iterations of a specific treatment or combination of treatments.
