Sampling for grapevine red blotch virus and other viruses


Sampling for virus testing in grapevines is a simple process and can be completed throughout the life cycle of the grapevine. Before sending a sample, check with the laboratory about their preferred sample type and preparation. Keep samples cool in an esky and/or fridge until they are sent to ensure sample integrity. Avoid sampling when it is hot.
