Project description (English)

As part of the National Agritech Center Project, the Plant Pathology group is involved in research activities aimed at studying and developing alternative methods to the use of chemical compounds for the control of plant diseases, with particular reference to the grapevine. The research involves the characterization of defense mechanisms in plants that show a lower degree of susceptibility to pathogens, the study of multitrophic interactions designed to improve grapevine response to stresses, and the development of new biopesticides with antimicrobial activity.
