Biocontrol and Plant nutrition in Viticulture
Limiting phytosanitary inputs while maintaining productivity and high quality at the press is a key challenge for the wine industry. Practices are evolving towards the use of safe products, alternative or supplementary solutions that bring both technical and economical performance to wine makers worldwide.
Biofungicides derived from microorganisms are efficient tools against fungal diseases such as Downy mildew, Powdery mildew, Botrytis or ESCA/BDA and help in resistance management. They allow the deployment of new integrated protection strategies in the vineyard. Additionally, plant nutrition products enhance vine flowering, secure fruit settlement, and guarantee optimum bunch development.
