Music Reduces Bug Damage

Recommended Posts

Having my morning coffee and watching the CBS Morning News show.  


They did a short video on an experiment in an Italian wine vine yard where the owners have been playing classical music in a section of their property for ten years.   They have been able to document a higher sugar content in the harvested grapes.   A researcher has been studying the site for several years and his observation is better finished product is due to reduced bug damage to the vines in the music section of the vineyard.   He seems to believe that the music confuses the bugs and the plants see less damage.


Anyway, though everyone might enjoy the piece....
