[Autom. eng. transl.] In September 2009 the European Union introduced the so-called Directive on the sustainable use of plant protection products (EU 128/2009 / EC). The Directive establishes a framework for achieving sustainability through a real reduction of the risk to human health and the environment. In particular, the Directive aims to improve controls (both in the use and distribution of plant protection products), promote non-chemical alternatives, encourage agricultural practices that adopt low quantities, and establish a transparent system to monitor and communicate progress - yes and the results achieved. The Italian legislation has adapted to the new Directive through the "National Action Plan" (implemented with Legislative Decree No. 150 of 14 August 2012) and now it will be up to companies to adapt in a practical way to the new rules. The Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Piacenza wanted to contribute to this process of adaptation by carrying out a survey of monitoring in the vineyard on how to use the agrofaramias. The goal was therefore to create a scientific base that would bring out the needs and criticalities of the sector to be shared by companies so that they can implement appropriate sustainability paths.
