The VITICAST Operational Group organizes a dissemination webinar for the end of the innovation project


The supra-autonomous VITICAST Operational Group, of which FEUGA is member, will celebrate, on September the 6th, the final dissemination webinar of the project.

Born in 2019, the aim of VITICAST is to optimize the production and to enhance the sustainable cultivation of the vine through the innovation in the management of the fungal diseases of higher incidence (downy mildew, powdery mildew and botrytis). With this purpose, a warning tool of possible infections has been developed. This tool combines meteorological data measured at the vineyard level, the prediction of the phenological stage of the vine and the concentration of spores and inoculum necessary for the infection to occur. This tool allows to estimate the production in advance, as well as to reduce the amount of phytosanitary products applied.

In the webinar, the members of the VITICAST project will describe all the technical and applicative aspects of this innovative warning tool, besides presenting the main results obtained in the project, which is about to finish.

To whom is this webinar focused on?

  • Wineries and cooperatives.
  • Regulating Councils of Appellation of Origin
  • Manufacturers of machinery and technologies related to the sector
  • Private winegrowers
  • Public Administrations related to agriculture, environmental and rural development
