Summary

This practice abstract explains how reducing the use of copper helps to decrease the negative environmental impact and improves in the soil biodiversity, helping to keep beneficial organisms in the vineyard. It provides practical recommendations for preventing disease in new vineyards, and strategies for maintenance of the established vineyards. This tool is recommended for all vintners, conventional and organic, who are aiming at reducing their copper use.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Integrated approaches to reduce copper use in viticulture.
What problem does the tool address?:Copper is widely used in organic plant protection in horti- cultural crops. It is easy to use and effective against many fungal and bacterial diseases. However, the accumulation of copper in soil causes adverse conditions for beneficial or- ganisms. Furthermore, the useable amount is limited to 4 kg/ha/year (an average over seven years) in most European countries.
What solution does the tool offer?:Plant health strategies that aim to reduce the current use of copper combine:
• Preventive measures: beginning with the vineyard's de-
sign and complemented with agrotechnical practices ap- plied throughout the year. If appropriate, use of disease- tolerant cultivars.
• Direct plant protection methods: including the applica- tion of copper alternatives.
