Vineyards of the Midwest may be in danger by an emerging virus. A little bug not normally indigenous to Missouri is being tested to see if it is the culprit. The Grapevine vein clearing virus (GVCV) was first discovered in 2004 in a commercial vineyard in Augusta, Missouri. The disease gets its name from typical symptoms including translucent veins on young leaves and a decline of vine vigor. In the advanced stages, the affected vines become dwarfed and bear fewer fruit sets.
