Syllabus
Prerequisites: Knowledges of Biology, Microbiology, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Viticulture
Target skills and knowledge: The aim of the course is to provide knowledge on the basic principles of Plant pathology and Phytoiatry as well as specific knowledge about the main grapevine diseases.
Students will achieve both the ability to properly carry out a diagnosis, and to schedule the most appropriate disease management program
Examination methods: The examination is carried out through written test with open questions
Assessment criteria: Will be evaluated:
the understanding of the basic concepts of Plant Pathology and Phytoiatry;
the understanding of reasons behind the choice of diagnostic techniques and plant diseases protocols
the ability of autonomously connect the various topics studied and exploit them for the development of various protocols for diseases control;
specific knowledge of the major diseases of the vine
Course unit contents: 1st credit: Plant disease: basic concepts; factors influencing disease development; disease cycle; plant disease losses; assesment of disease intensity and disease losses.

2nd credit: Principles and strategies of diseases control; disease forecasting; diseases management and use of the decision-making models. Disease control ways.

3rd credit: Chemicals (pesticides): benefits and defects; toxicity and risks; product effectiveness and treatment efficiency; legislation.

4th credit: Characteristics of the main families of fungicides with particulary attention to those for grapevine. Legal strategies of disease control; biological, genetic, physical and agronomic methods of plant disease control. Soil disinfection.

5th credit: Main pathogens of the grapevine: general characteristics and taxonomy of fungi and oomycetes. Fruit and foliar disease of grape caused by oomycetes and fungi.

6th credit: Minor foliage diseases caused by fungi; wood and root diseases caused by fungi and oomycetes.

7th credit:General characteristics and taxonomy of phytoplasmas, bacteria and virus; grapevine phytoplasmosis;FD and BN; bacterial and viral diseases of grapevine.

8th credit: Practical work, carried out in the classroom, in the laboratory and in the vineyard
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Teaching will be carried out through:
52 hours of lectures, using Power Point slide shows;
8 hours of practical work, carried out in the classroom, in the laboratory and in the vineyard
Additional notes about suggested reading: The Power Point slides used during the course will be posted on Internet (https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/).
It is important to attend the course and take notes to supplement Power Point slides.
The Powerpoint slides complemented with the notes taken in class are enough to pass the exam
