Abstract


The effectiveness of the biopesticide Serenade Max to control fruit rot in grape was investigated. The experiments were conducted in commercial vineyard (cv Xinomavro Naousa). The results showed that this product was relatively effective to control fruit rots on grapes. No significant difference was observed between Serenade Max and Switch25/37.5 WG in both years of experiment. It was found that the fungus Botrytis cinerea commonly caused fruit rots (at a percentage of 96%) on the control grape fruits.

Generally, Serenade Max could be an alternative method against fruit rots of grape in biological fruit production system.
