Biovine: Bacterial biocontrol to eliminate a pathogenic fungus involved in the devastating grapevine trunk disease EscaSeed Funding

Esca is a disease of the vine trunk that causes a 1-billion-euro loss every year in the wine industry in France. Since the ban of sodium arsenate, no treatment is available.

The Biovine project can change the game: it studies the positive effects of certain bacteria on diseased vines. The objective is to be able to inject these bacteria directly into the trunk of the vines using an innovative application method.

Project leader : Eleonore Attard
