One of the main pathogens on grapevine is Plasmopara viticola (downy mildew). The aim of this field is to show and compare all fungicide strategies against this pathogen.
Plasmopara viticola, a causal agent of grapevine downy mildew, is a particular “fungus” which develops in a warm and moist environment. Symptoms include irregular yellow spots on the top surface of the leaves (they can turn brown due to necrosis) and white dusty spots on the bottom part of them. On bunches, the fruits become covered with white/gray dust and they change their color from purple to reddish-brown.
We have tried different strategies and products, biological and chemical, in order to evaluate them in terms of efficacy in controlling this pathogen

We wait for you in the field!
