Definizione

A tiny aphidlike insect that attacks the roots of grapevines.1

Nota

Phyllloxera vastatrix (its Latin name) is thought to be indigenous to the eastern United States, and the thick, strong, native American rootstocks are reasonably resistant to this parasite. Much more vulnerable to phylloxera is the vitis vinifera rootstock-a species native to Europe and Central Asia and responsible for a majority of the world's wine production. […]
There are a few places around the world that phylloxera has never invaded either because of the remote location of the vineyards or the inhospitable soil makeup. Many of these vineyards are planted on Vitis vinifera rootstock. Some parts of Australia, Argentina, Chile are phylloxera free as are island vineyards on Crete, Cyprus and Rhodes and a few isolated areas like Spain's colares doc. 2

Contesto

The Phylloxera and Grape Industry Board of South Australia (PGIBSA) is committed to protecting South Australian vineyards from phylloxera and providing effective pest and disease management policies and information to industry and government. 3
