Presentation :

The phytosanitary protection of vineyards raises many questions of interest to winegrowers. What diseases and pests attack vines in the different producing countries? What vineyard management practices ensure phytosanitary protection? What are the consequences of the use of organic and inorganic pesticides in terms of environmental risks on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems? What are the reactions of biological species to the impacts of pesticides?

It is to best answer all these questions that researchers from various disciplines (agronomists, agroecologists, agroeconomists, environmental chemists, hydrobiologists, ecologists, ecotoxicologists) have joined forces to provide scientific explanations, supported by their experiences. on a common study site.

These authors also explore strategies for evolving viticultural systems to drastically reduce the current phytosanitary pressure of pesticides on ecosystems and biota. Finally, they examine the action of public policies supporting these strategies.

Each chapter is accompanied by the testimony of a socio-professional actor, or scientific expert, in order to establish a close relationship between the needs in the field and the research carried out.

This book is mainly aimed at managers of agricultural and environmental services, teachers and students, professionals in the field: winegrowers and advisors, river technicians, etc. but also at anyone interested in the problem of pesticides, more particularly in viticulture.
