Many factors impose new challenges for the control of pests and
diseases in vineyards. The globalization of markets and trading
of horticultural products and climate change have impacted the
distribution and biology of many living organisms. More and
better monitoring and diagnostic tools will need the support of
nowadays’ extraordinary communicational capacity to help coping
with our ever-changing world. An example of this technological
integration is the recent eradication of the European Grapevine
Moth that threatened the California Grape Industry. This session
aims inducing critical thinking beyond the conventional use
of pesticides. Examples of novel sustainable practices will be
presented and discussed by qualified vineyard specialists.
