Agrometeorological Simulation Using PERO Model for Grape Vine Downy Mildew in Greece. Agrometeorological Simulation Using PERO Model for Grape Vine Downy Mildew in Greece. N.R. Dalezios, D. Bampzelis and G. Daoularis Department of Agriculture Animal Production and Aquatic Environment. University of Thessaly, Volos, Greece.
PERO Model was applied for Grape Vine Downy Mildew. Area of Study: Thessaly (Central Greece). Specific Areas: Tirnavos: Year 2001. N. Aghialos: Years 2000 and 2001.
Meteorological Data used in the Analysis: Daily Rain Data. Hourly Temperature Values. Hourly Relative Humidity Values. Hourly Leaf Wetness Values (measured by sensor). Starting and ending dates of infections Start infectionEnd infection 29/4/200116/5/2001 25/5/200111/6/2001 26/5/200111/6/2001 27/5/200115/6/2001 Start infectionEnd infection 29/4/200111/5/2001 9/6/200121/6/2001 23/6/200116/7/2001 N.

Results of Application of the PERO Model for both Areas. Numbers of new, latent, visible, and total oilspots per hectare for the ending dates of the infection for the N. Aghialos area (a), (b), and Tyrnavos area (c). End infection New oilspots Latent oilspots Visible oilspots Total oilspots 11/5/20000050 25/5/200000218 15/6/2000001659 16/5/20010050 11/6/2001037110421413 15/6/2001001411 11/5/20010050 21/6/200100194 16/7/200100837 (a) (b) (c)
Model results for the new, latent, visible, total oilspots.
Comparison of calculated / counted oilspots for N. Aghialos area dates(counted- simulated)/ hectare (counted- simulated)/ counted 28/5/200114800,97 5/6/200116320,97 15/6/200114390,50 27/6/20015450,28 10/7/20017130,38 Results of the simulation were compared with actual measurements of the disease taken by agronomists in situ for the same periods
Results of the Application (for both Areas) 1.The model made reliable forecasts of the infection. 2.The model forecasted correctly the variation and the intensity of the disease especially in its critical stage, when maximum infection occurred. 3.Variations in Relative Humidity and leaf wetness play an important role for spreading of the disease.
