Combating Downy Mildew of Grapes

Zorvec™ Disease Control Combats Downy Mildew of Grapes

When it comes to grape growing, what you don’t see can hurt you. That’s why it’s important to stop downy mildew of grapes before the symptoms even appear. Fortunately, the new  Zorvec™ technology offers unmatched control of this disease, providing you the opportunity to realise higher yields, better grape quality and improved productivity.

“Fungicides are essential for grapes,” says Gianni Menotti, an enologist and agronomist in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy. “Prevention is always best.”


With Zorvec™, the results of proper application speak for themselves. The ideal time to apply products containing Zorvec™ technology is early in crop development, which for grapes means the flowering and fruit set stages. The number of flowers directly correlates to the potential number of grapes. If the plant is stressed and unable to produce flowers, grape yields will be limited. Once the grapes are set, downy mildew can cause them to fall off the vine, further reducing yield.

Zorvec™ disease control (oxathiapiprolin) is not registered for sale or use in all countries. No offer for sale, sale, or use of this product is permitted prior to issuance of the required country level registrations.
