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

Please fill in the questionnaire below, your replies will support tremendously my research efforts for a discussion paper I am preparing for my 2nd year project at Plumpton college. This should take around 8 minutes.





Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is important for minimizing the environmental impact of viticulture (UC Davis, 2018).

Major wine regions around the world have IPM systems (Klohr, Fleuchaus and Theuvsen, 2013).

About Me

My name is Yvonne Christensen.

I am a 2nd-year Viticulture & Oenology diploma student at Plumpton college. I am currently doing my 2nd-year project on Integrated Pest Management (IPM). As the UK is currently lacking an IPM scheme the goal of the project is to build such a resource.

My focus is on sustainable approaches in viticulture and to have growers across regions in the UK unite in action towards developing an IPM scheme that helps to monitor and combat disease.
In this process it is very important to collect as much data as possible on vineyards across the UK.
Therefore I would kindly ask you to take the time to answer the questions below.

Thank you for completing the questionnaire, your feedback is greatly appreciated and an invaluable help in building an IPM resource that will benefit vineyards across the UK.
