Insecticide and Fungicide Spraying

Can you believe the japanese beetles are still around? Well I got some more medecine for them... Plus I noticed some powdery mildew on the cabernet franc, so also hit the vineyard with the Microthiol Special (wettable sulfur) at a rate of 4 lbs per acre and some Dithane DF Rainshield Nt (active ingredient is Mancozeb) at the same rate. Took a couple hours to get the application done - this handheld spraying is getting to be kind of a drag - looking forward to next year with the tow behind sprayer.
