Argentine grapevine moth alert

Argentine authorities have raised an alert following the detection of European grapevine moths ( Lobesia botrana) in the country. Inspectors from the national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, detected the moths in vineyards in Mendoza state. The service has intensified the setting of pheromone traps to impede the spread of the pest. The main measures it has adopted include setting a quarantine area around grapevine producing areas in the state, and restricting the transit of crops, propagation material, and used packaging and equipment. The Senasa has also increased the frequency of monitoring and ordered the destruction of residues following pruning. The alert was issued in the official gazette on March 9th.
