Grape moth quarantine moves in Argentina

Argentine authorities have detected several mass captures in traps of European grapevine moths ( Lobesia botrana) in the province of Mendoza. Several Argentine departments are under quarantine to control the moths. Measures include monitoring and the application of insecticides provided to growers by the authorities ( Agrow No 629, p 21). Such measures have been intensified since the captures. Meanwhile, the same monitoring has found no detection of the pest in the province of San Juan, where over 1,400 traps were set. Monitoring has been expanded to a further 12 provinces, numbering 15 in total.
