Research field

Studies and identification of viruses, virus-like organisms and fungi of grapevine, potatoes and medicinal plants using classical (micro and macroscopic) and modern phytopathological methods (serological and molecular). In vitro and in vivo studies of alternative measures for the control of phytopathogenic fungi (rhizosphere and lactic acid bacteria, essential oils, propolis, copper citrate) for biological protection.
