Seeking feedback from member/ growers and their understanding of the importance of hand tool sterilization . Do you currently sterilize your pruning tools such as by-pass snips or loppers between cuts on individual plants or between distinct vines on trellises? How do you currently sterilize your hand tools if at all? Would you actively be willing to sterilize more often if a system was available to enable easy sterilization in the field during pruning operations to combat the spread of fungal, bacterial or viral communities?

Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
