The model, called Plasmo (Plasmopora Simulation Model), simulates grapevine downy mildew biological cycle on the basis of agrometeorological parameter, allowing the best timing for fungicide treatments. The model reliability was evaluated during several years of research, comparing the results obtained by applying traditional methods of crop management with those planned according to model simulation.
Plasmo was implemented by collaboration among several institute: Institute of Biometeorology (IBIMET - Firenze) National Research Council (CNR); Department of Agronomy and Land Management (DISAT) - University of Florence; Centre for the Application of Computer Science in Agriculture (Ce.SIA) - Accademia dei Georgofili. The online version has been developed and is provided by Institute of Biometeorology (IBIMET - Bologna).
