Area-wide Cariñena DO mating disruption for controlling the European grapevine moth


Abstract: Mating disruption is known to be a reliable and effective tool for the control of Lobesia botrana when applied as part of an area-wide pest management strategy (AWPM). The Cariñena project has involved more than 500 farmers and 92% of the DO Cariñena vine surface (13,200 hectares) in just four years. This was possible thanks to the efforts of the main wineries and farmers, under the coordination of a technical working group. The results achieved are encouraging in terms of the satisfactory pest control obtained and the important reduction in the use of insecticides.
