The Institut Catalá de la Viñya i el Vi (INCAVI) hosts the conference “Uniting efforts towards the reduction of phytosanitary products” in the control of mildew and powdery mildew in vine plantations.
It is a meeting that aims to show the results of the LIFE FITOVID project obtained from the application of different management schemes for the control of mildew and powdery mildew of the vine. These conclusions have been drawn from the impact of the reduction in the use of plant protection products in the production of grapes, must and wine, and include their consequences from the environmental, economic and health areas.
The meeting will begin on Wednesday, April 5 at 10:00 am at INCAVI in Vilafranca del Penedès (Barcelona), and will affect the improvement of efficiency in treatments and the correct realization of them, as well as the good state of the applicator machinery, also showing the reduction in the costs of phytosanitary products and the saving of fuel.
Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the University of the Basque Country, together with companies from the Tecnalia group (Neiker / Azti) are participating in this date.
