Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of Plant Pathology and General Arboriculture
Target skills and knowledge: The aim of the course is:
- to cover key diseases of stone and pome fruit trees and of grapevine.
- to provide data about the diseases in order to facilitate their detection and recognition.
- to focus on integrated management of main diseases of perennial crops and select the best control strategies.
Examination methods: The exam consists of a written test. The written test can be integrated with an interview when necessary.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation will be based on the notions, concepts and topics acquired in the course.
Course unit contents: - Major Stone and Pome fruit diseases caused by fungi: fruit and foliar diseases; wood and soil-borne diseases.
- Diseases caused by bacteria, phytoplasmas and viruses affecting temperate fruit crops.
- Postharvest pathogens of stone and pome fruits and control measures.
- Major Grape diseases.
- Current guidelines for sustainable, integrated fruit tree disease management and new perspectives for the implementation of IPM.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Teaching is based on frontal lessons and seminars.
Additional notes about suggested reading: The material used for frontal lessons will be available at https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/
