Ep. 1958 Lyka Caparas Pt 5 of 5 | Everybody Needs A Bit Of Scienza

Welcome to Episode 1958, where Prof. Scienza takes questions from the wine community and answers them in his inimitable way! These shows are generally in the Italian language. Today’s question comes from Lyka Caparas part 5 of 5. 

Professor Scienza answers the question: What advancements have been made in the field of biological pest control in viticulture, particularly regarding the breeding and release of predatory insects to manage pest populations? How do these methods compare to traditional chemical pesticides in terms of effectiveness, sustainability, and environmental impact?

Italian: Quali progressi sono stati fatti nel campo del controllo biologico dei parassiti in viticoltura, in particolare per quanto riguarda l'allevamento e il rilascio di insetti predatori per gestire le popolazioni di parassiti? Come si collocano questi metodi rispetto ai tradizionali pesticidi chimici in termini di efficacia, sostenibilità e impatto ambientale?
