An insect pest of American origin that arrived in Europe in the second half of the 1800s and spread to all vineyards. It causes damage at the root level with the formation of knotty galls and then a consequent loss of water absorption capacity at the leaf level. The infection appears silently until you notice that the plants begin to die.
A fungal disease, similar to mildew, that makes the leaves on the vine brittle and then attacks the bunches preventing the berries from ripening.
