Abstract

Vitebio.net™ is a DSS (Decision Support System) for guiding decision about tactical management of downy mildew in organic vineyards. The DSS is available for registered users via the internet in an interactive way. It is composed by (i) a network of weather stations that measure environmental variables, (ii) a server repository that stores weather data and fungicide application schedule; (iii) a set of mathematical models that use weather data and vineyard-specific information to predict the biological events relevant for decision making. Vitebio.net output provides information on both actual hourly weather conditions and 3-days forecasts, while its models simulate the risk for primary and secondary infections of Plasmopara viticola, and the optimum dose of copper to be applied depending on disease risk, residual coverage of the previous fungicide application, and grapevine growth and development. Several pilot farms are managing each year different vineyards following Vitebio.net and the results obtained are compared with the usual grower’s practice in order to evaluate the DSS performances.
