ADVANCED INTERACTION SEARCH
This study evaluates the capacity of commercial formulations of synthetic fungicides to inhibit grapevine bacterial growth when sprayed on vineyards to control diseases, such as downy mildew, powdery mildew and secondary rots. Fungicide sensitivity plate assays were carried out on bacteria isolated from vineyards that were also identified and characterized for their plant growth-promoting (PGP) traits and antifungal activity. The high taxonomic variability of bacteria screened with different chemical classes of fungicides is one new finding of this study. Seven out of 11 fungicides were able to inhibit the growth of bacteria at a concentration corresponding to the maximum dose allowed by law in spray treatments of vineyards. Bacterial sensitivity to each fungicide varied greatly. Many sensitive isolates displayed PGP traits and/or antagonistic activity. This study shows the potential impact of fungicidal treatments on grapevine bacterial microbiota. The involvement of bacteria beneficial to the growth and health of plants underlines the importance of this investigation. Our data reveal that the control of a certain disease may be possible using fungicides that have no or low impact on natural non-target microbiota. Understanding the action mechanisms of the active ingredients in these products is a priority for the development of new eco-friendly pesticides.
