CISOL: Caratterizzazione delle interazioni chimiche e fisiche regolanti il passaggio di Philaenus spumarius su olivo

This project aims at reducing the population of Philaenus spumarius, the main vector of Xylella fastidiosa on olive trees, by altering the physical and chemical cues that regulate its passage from the grass to olive trees. We aim at diverting the insect vector to artificial or plant traps avoiding the colonization of olive trees. This approach will be implemented in a wider IPM approach to reduce the impact of X. fastidiosa on olive trees in the red zone.
