The Grapevine project

GRAPEVINE is a European initiative aiming to improve current pest prediction and control systems in the wine sector, thanks to Big Data and Artificial Intelligence technologies.

GRAPEVINE will provide prevention and monitoring tools for the comprehensive management of pest spreads, allowing farmers in particular and all agri-food agents in general to optimize chemicals and fertilizers resulting in very positive economic and environmental impacts across the European Union

Within the framework of the project, several models representing the behaviour of five different pests and diseases will be considered: Three pathogenic fungi (Plasmopara viticola, Botrytis cinerea and Uncinula necator and two butterflies (Lobesia botrana and Sparganothis pilleriana)
