After discussing several existing models for predicting Peronospora spp. infection in vines, one more suited to Italian conditions and devised by the Catholic University of Piacenza and the plant health services of Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont and the University of Bologna is described. The model looks at the biological effect of weather conditions on the cycle of primary infection and is constructed on the basis of a flow diagram (illustrated), which takes account of the entire patho-system. It has been validated in various epidemiological conditions between 1995 and 2006 and has proved accurate with very few false alarms.
