Mark Battany have been working on Syrah Disorder/Decline on the California Central Coast since 2002. Some of the earliest work in this area included a survey of local Syrah plantings, to determine if there were any patterns with the appearance of the symptoms with different clones, rootstocks, ages of vineyards, and locations.

Subsequently we have conducted several virus surveys, and have investigated the role that water stress, soil salinity, nutrient levels, and crop load have on the appearance of the Disorder and Decline symptoms. I have also visited many local vineyards to evaluate and document the different types of symptoms that we have in the area. This ongoing work has been shared with the local industry through frequent presentations to the winegrape industry throughout California.
