Biocontrol of Major Grapevine Diseases provides a timely research update on the use of biological control agents and plant resistance inducers against phytopathogenic infections of the grapevine by fungi, oomycetes, bacteria and phytoplasma. Taking a holistic approach, this book presents in detail the ecology, mechanisms and the application methods of these agents. Its 19 chapters, authored by international experts, cover diseases such as grey mold, trunk diseases, and, by nature, emphasize applications of biocontrol in organic viticulture and as part of integrated pest management systems.
