Clim4Vitis - Modelling Pests and Diseases in vineyards

Simulation of grape pests and diseases & applied decision support systems


From 17-18 February 2020, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), in partnership with the Institut viti-vinicole, will organize the Clim4Vitis project meeting at LIST (Belvaux) and the Institut Viti-vinicole (Remich) in Luxembourg.
Participants will get direct insides into (i) scientific methodologies of modelling biology and epidemiology of fungal diseases and pests in viticulture and (ii) the application of targeted viticultural decision support systems.
