Sustainable Protection in Viticulture Against Viruses, Bacteria and Phytoplasmas

Protection against Viruses, Bacteria and Phytoplasmas in Viticulture

The Agroscope Changins ‘Virology and Phytoplasmology’ research group diagnoses viral, phytoplasma and bacterial diseases of plants in all crops. A national centre of excellence, we identify or anticipate serious epidemic or emerging diseases – often quarantine diseases – with the aim of protecting Swiss crops, within a context of global warming and growing globalisation. To do this, we develop tools and diagnostic methods for work in microbiology, serology, molecular biology and genetics. Diagnosis and the necessary tools – reliable and internationally recognised – are essential for modern, sustainable plant protection, for both the environment and consumers.
