2294.5 Noel 19 Greenhouse Plant = No More

Running out of daylight, but most of the hard work is almost done. The plastic is removed and folded up and the plant has been put on a trailer to be disposed of off-site. As the plant was being removed the vines were inspected and root development would be classified as very aggressive which is due directly to the application of CloneX gel at each node.

Internally in the vines everything was clean which in the past the very early start of potential issues could be seen at this point in the season. This is attributed to the early season hydrogen peroxide drench that was done as no other soil drench fungicides have been added this year. This is great to see on this plant and also gives a positive indication on how the outdoor plant looks internally. Even though the hydrogen peroxide treatment may not keep the plant clean for the full goring season, being able to delay disease onset is still a great advantage.
