Powdery mildew - Grapes
Powdery mildew (Erysiphe necator) is a widespread and common disease of grapes in New Zealand. Obvious as white spots which can spread across leaves producing a grey-white sporulation. Bunches are also infected with the characteristic grey-white sporulation symptoms. Winemakers detest powdery mildew as even minor infection of grapes has a detrimental effect on subsequent wine quality.
