Biocontrol of Xylella and its vector in olive trees for integrated pest management

Olive and almond trees in the Mediterranean are threatened by the plant-pathogenic Xylella bacterium and its spittlebug transmitter. New biopesticides are needed to fight the bacterial threat, reduce the impact of chemical pesticides, and render olive and almond cultivations sustainable.

The EU-funded BIOVEXO project will develop innovative biopesticides that decrease chemical pesticide input and provide higher protection to the plant. The biopesticides will be tested at large pilot scale in olive and almond trees at multiple locations incl. Apulia and Mallorca.

As for now, this community is only for BIOVEXO project partners. This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No. 887281.

By the end of the project, it is expected that the community will be open to further  scientific and farming community dealing with Xylella fastidiosa in order to share and promote synergies with relevant stakeholders.
