INTEGRATED PEST CONTROL IN VITICULTURE
In integrated pest control, priority is given to natural factors which can limit pest populations, such as plant resistance, natural enemies and appropriate agronomic practices. Other methods, such as insecticides, which are potentially harmful to the environment, are only applied if natural factors are not sufficient, and in a manner such that any damage to the ecosystem is kept to a minimum. This volume examines the role of integrated control systems in vine cultivation, and considers the following main topics: Principal organisms noxious in viticulture: animal pests and diseases; Sampling methodology and economic threshold for phytophagous species; Integrated pest management; control methodologies and strategies.
