Pests and Helpers is the second volume of the The Vine collection. In the long term, four volumes will compose it, which will deal with the health (fungi, pests and auxiliaries, viruses, bacteria and phytoplasmas) and physiological aspects of this plant, the cultivation of which occupies a considerable place in the world.
Fighting pests that threaten the vine is essential to produce quality grapes. Fortunately, the extensive research undertaken on this subject in the context of integrated production has now made it possible to dispense with insecticides and acaricides in most cases. Thus the fight against phylloxera, red and yellow mites or grape worms can be carried out successfully by biological or biotechnical means without danger to other species.
This new book aims to present the very diverse fauna that frequents the vineyards, detailing the species that threaten them but also those that discreetly support the winegrower day after day. It is aimed both at experienced practitioners wishing to extend their knowledge and at young winegrowers in training, agricultural advisers, technicians, teachers, students and scientists interested in viticultural entomology and, more broadly, at anyone wishing to better understand the ecosystem constituted by the vineyard.
