Grapes are one of the most important crops for the Mediterranean and Balkan area. Anthesis, which is highly active in the specific area, through these years has developed a full, integrated program for the management of the major pests and diseases damaging viticulture.

Everything started back on 2014 when Anthesis, in collaboration with Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. LTD introduced in the Greek market ISONET L for the control of Lobesia botrana in vines. The product is based on the innovative Mating Disruption Method, according to which a high level of pest control can be achieved and at the same time, the use of chemicals, the level of damage and pest resistance can be diminished.

Nowadays, Isonet L TT (the product that Isonet L gave way to) has already been widely accepted and successfully implemented in Viticulture by exporters and large cooperatives of table grapes as well as by the largest wineries of Greece.


New Trends in Plant Protection, for effective pest control, require a combination of all available methods. In this context, Anthesis provides a wide range of solutions along with technical knowledge and has developed an extended portofolio for viticulture by adding well-known biocontrol and biostimulant products such as:

  • Isonet PF – Mating Disruption System for the control of Vine Mealy Bug
  • Vitisan – Fungicide containing Potassium Bicarbonate for the control of Powdery mildew
  • Julietta – Microbial fungicide for the control of Grey mold
  • Curatio – Fungicide containing Calcium Polysulphide for the control of Powdery mildew
  • Rapax AS – Insecticide containing Bt var kurstakii for the control of Lepidopteran pests
  • Pyganic 1.4 – Insecticide based on Pyrethrins for the control of Aphids and Leafhoppers
  • Neem Azal T/S – Insecticide containing Azadirachtin for the control of Vine Mealy Bug

These solutions are supported by the technical team of Anthesis who conducts frequent damage assessments, especially for L. botrana and P. ficus and evaluates the progress of the IPM program.
