BIO-INOCULANT DOWEL IMPLANT
Vinevax BioDowel is a Trichoderma loaded wooden dowel that has both ACVM and APVMA registration. Vinevax BioDowel improves productivity and the health of the plant, offering protection against a range of grapevine trunk diseases such as Eutypa lata and Botryosphaeria. The direct method of application ensures a long lasting response as the Trichoderma is transmitted through the trunk or branch. Also registered for Silverleaf, application into pip and stone fruit should be both into the affected branches and the main trunk of the tree.
Application into a vine once the trunk is thick enough to take the dowel can offer a lifetimes protection against disease. Click here to link to an article by Mike Roberts about the use of the dowels at Henschke Vineyard in the Eden Valley.
