Widespread lepidopteran pest throughout 1100 Ha of wine vineyard, that could no longer be adequately controlled chemically. In response to the resistance problem farmers installed a 150 Ha pilot trial with mating disruption in close collaboration with biocontrol companies and agronomists for close monitoring.
Technical result: : After successful pilot project on 150Ha , mating disruption was expanded to 1100Ha, area wide application was the key to success to control this lepidopteran pest
Economic result: Residue free, quality grapes enter market at higher price
Sustainability (ecological, social and economical) Gains:
Reduction in reliance on chemical pesticides
Increased biodiversity enabling resilient vine cropping systems
Species specific pest control, respecting natural enemies
Enables worker and consumer health and wellbeing
Promotes quality nutritious grape production
Demonstrates good governance (preventative approach) and successful teamwork
Circular approach reduces loss and waste
Supports farmers’ livelihood and value distribution
