    Diseases and pests represent a majorthreat to the commercial production of

    grapes in the world.

    Climatic conditions are conducive to the

    development of several major grapediseases, including black rot, downy and

    powdery mildew.

    Each of these diseases has the potential to

    destroy the entire crop.

    Most diseases occur simultaneously within

    the same vineyard during the growing

    Downy MildewCausal organism

    Scientific Name: Plasmopara viticola

    lower leaf surface.

    Biology )he causal fungus, Plasmopara viticola overwinters

    as thick*walled oospores in infected tissues and inthe soil.

    $ minimum of + mm of rain is re-uired for

    oospores to produce sporangia that are dispersed byrain splash to young green tissue.

    )he sporangia release motile oospores that swim to

    the stomates, germinate and infect tissues.

    Disease development is most rapid between /oCand /0oC with fre-uent rain or dew.

    Powdery mildewCausal organism

    Scientific Name : Erysiphe necator (previouslyUncinula necator)

    1osses in yield of fruits may be upto 2*34. &n addition to loss

    of yield, infected berries tend to be higher in acid content than

    healthy fruits and are unsuitable for wine making.


    (n all tissues, powdery mildew looks like a greyish*whitepowder.


    5re-uently first found on the undersides of leaves.

    1esions become apparent on the upper sides of leaves as well.

    (n rapidly growing leaves, infections on the underside may

    cause the leaves to appear puckered on top.

    %everely infected leaves may become brittle and drop off.

    %tarting as early as late 6uly, very small orange then brownand eventually black spherical structures cleistothecia

    develop on the upper and lower surfaces of infected leaves.


    &nitially greyish*white, develop into brown irregular blotches.

    &ndistinct margins and remain visible after shoot hardening.


    7ecome covered in conidia.

    $n initial floury appearance that later becomes dark and grey.

    Dry out and may drop off.

    1ater infections 89*2 weeks post bloom: will have superficial

    greyish scarring.

    Black rotCausal organism

    Scientific Name: Guignardia bidwellii


    Leaves elatively small, brown circular lesions develop on infected

    leaves and within a few days tiny black spherical fruitingbodies 8pycnidia: protrude from them.

    Berries: &nfected berries first appear light or chocolate brown but

    -uickly turn darker brown, with masses of black pycnidiadeveloping on the surface.

    5inally, infected berries shrivel and turn into hard blackraisin*like bodies that are called mummies.

    Shoots under high disease pressure brown to black elongated

    lesions develop.

    &t is especially serious on new sprouts during rainy season.

    $mong various foliar diseases of grapevine in &ndia,

    anthracnose has longest spell spread over the period from

    Developing into small round spots with brown or black

    margins with greyish*white centres which drop out causing

    a @shot*holeA appearance.

    %evere infections cause malformed leaves that shrivel up

    and drop.
