Cervisane controls powdery and downy mildew and Botrytis in grapevine in Italy
  • Grape vine / Italy / Cervisane (cell walls of the yeast Sachharomyces cervicae LAS 117) / powdery and downey mildew and Botrytis
  • To reduce the use of copper to 4kg/ Ha in downy mildew control in N and C Italy, the synergistic biological agent Cervisane is used successfully for fungal disease control.




The trial shows clearly the essential support of the product (induction of plant resistant) for the disease
control in a very useful synergy with copper fungicide action


  • Technical result: ISR effect of selective biological management works synergistically with Copper for downy mildew management in grape
  • Economic result: residue free, quality grapes enter market at higher price
  • Sustainability (ecological, social and economical) Gains:


    • Enables regenerative land use practices
    • Reduction of reliance on cupper and chemical pesticides
    • Preserves the biodiversity enabling resilient ecosystems


    • Demonstrates good governance of soil management
    • Enables worker and consumer health and wellbeing
    • Secures quality food production


    • Improvement of financial viability
    • Higher crop yields
