What is grapevine powdery mildew

Grapevine powdery mildew, also known as white mold, is one of the most destructive vine diseases, on par with grapevine downy mildew. This is a mildew (uncinola necator) that if not stopped in time could affect the entire plantation.

It is very important, especially in the most at-risk vineyards, to start treatments early to effectively contain primary infections and prevent spread. This disease is not always predictable and has several stages in which it forms overwintering organs that then allow it to survive the winter and advance in infection. In addition, it develops within wide temperature ranges, that is, from 7 to 35 degrees.

The vineyards most at risk for grapevine powdery mildew are those that are hilly, in windy areas, and susceptible due to having suffered infections at the end of the previous season.

Martignani sprayers against grapevine powdery mildew

Martignani electrostatic sprayers offer the best guarantees in treatments, including against grapevine powdery mildew, because they allow uniform dye coverage in all affected parts of the plant (leaves, shoots and bunch).

Their micronization capacity, combined with the electrostatic charge device and the targeted spray, make it possible to reduce the doses/ha of active ingredient (almost in a 50%) and to contain losses both on the ground (dripping) and in the air (drifting).

Martignani Technology

Advanced electrostatic charge technology causes electrostatic fields to form between plants and the chemical mist delivered by the sprayer. The droplets, saturated with active ingredient, are attracted to the vegetation, reducing losses even in windy conditions and ensuring even and precise dye coverage.

Several years of research and hands-on experiments conducted around the world have provided surprising results, such that it can be said that electrostatic mist-blowing enhances the many advantages that are now widely recognized of low volume plant-protection treatments, including for combating grapevine powdery mildew.
