End User Flyer - Grapevine Trunk Diseases
The pathogens associated with grapevine trunk diseases - a set of taxonomicallyunrelated Ascomycete fungi - are able to infect healthy vines mainly by pruning wounds and these wounds can remain susceptible for several months.
The prevention of wound infection applying biocontrol agents is one of an alternative technique to control trunk diseases.
Species of the genus Trichoderma (an ascomycete fungus, originally present in the soil) have been investigated several times as a potential biocontrol agent by spatial and nutritive competition.
