Vineyard Owners or Managers – Are you concerned about disease in your vineyard?

Thank you for your willingness to answer the survey. Below are a series of questions relating to spotted wing drosophila and light brown apple moth in the UK. The answers from this survey will be used in a bachelor’s degree project titled “The Impact and Management of Two Different Insect Pests in the UK – An IPM Approach” as part fulfilment of a BSc (Hons) in Viticulture and Oenology at Plumpton College.

The survey has been designed with the aim of being as short as possible to encourage more respondents. However, feel free to provide as much detail as you wish in the text entry fields below the questions.

All answers to the survey are anonymous, the answers will only be publicised as a whole, and no attempts will be made to identify respondents.

Thank you for your time.

QUESTIONS

If you answered “NO, SWD and LBAM are NOT found” please skip to question 13. If you only have one of the pests (i.e. either SWD or LBAM and not both), please skip the questions relating to the other.

If you answered, "NO, I do NOT monitor SWD or LBAM" in question 4. please skip to question 6.

About Me

My name is Yvonne Christensen,

I am a 3rd-year Viticulture & Oenology BSc student at Plumpton College. I am currently doing my 3rd-year BSc project focused on Integrated Pest Management of two insect pests in the UK (Spotted wine drosophila (SWD) and Light brown apple moth (LBAM)). The project is based around a literature review of current research, combined with a survey of UK vineyard managers.

My goal is that through this work I can provide advice for UK vineyard managers on how to handle SWD and LBAM in an as environmentally friendly and sustainable way possible. In this process it is very important to collect as much data as possible on SWD and LBAM in vineyards across the UK.

If you have taken the time to complete the questionnaire I would like to thank you for your feedback, which is greatly appreciated and an invaluable help in building an IPM resource that will benefit vineyard managers across the UK to combat SWD and LBAM.
