Grapevine is one of the main fruits cultivated in the world, including Brazil. In São Paulo, the culture is highlighted in the production of grapes for fresh market consumption, mainly the grape 'Niágara Rosada' (Vitis labrusca), being considered the largest producing state of table grapes. Several factors may affect the yield potential and longevity of grapevines, including pathogen attack. Among the diseases of the grapevine, anthracnose is highlighted by both quantitative and qualitative losses in vineyards. However, studies of the etiology and epidemiology of this pathosystem are scarce. In Brazil, the disease is associated only with Sphaceloma ampelinum, while in other countries Colletotrichum spp. are considered the mains causal agents of anthracnose in grapevines. To date, no etiological study was conducted in Brazil to evaluate the presence of species of Colletotrichum as a causal agent of anthracnose and the importance of those pathogens in São Paulo production areas. With regard to epidemiology, there is no available knowledge about the effect of temperature and leaf wetness on the unicycle (s) of pathogen (s) in Vitis labrusca and spatiotemporal progress of the disease in the field. Therefore, the project aims to study the etiology and epidemiology of anthracnose in grapevine 'Niágara Rosada' in the environmental conditions of the State of São Paulo. (AU)
