The site in a few words

In France, approximately 13% of French vineyard is unproductive, with losses, in 2014, estimated at around € 1 billion. This situation has triggered great apprehension in the viticulture sector because no effective control treatments have been ever available since the use of sodium arsenate, the sole pesticide registered to control GTDs was banned in Europe in the early 2000s.


This site presents the projects that federate the research activities, carried out by the French scientists, to better understand these diseases and to develop new strategies for protecting the vineyards.


These projects are founded by various structures; the French National Research Agency and Hennessy Company (Industrial Chair), the French Ministry in charge of Agriculture and the National Wine Interprofessional Committee (CASDAR, Ecophyto), Europe (Interreg IV, COST), the Poupelain Foundation and the Fonds Unique Interministériel (FUI).
