Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) is one of the main crops worldwide. It has been cultivated since ancient times and its susceptibility to many different pests and diseases is well known. Potential disease-producing agents are many and very diverse, including viruses, fungi, nematodes, bacteria, and phytoplasmas.

Reducing the damage caused by these biotic agents is a priority to maintain the productivity and profitability of this crop. Traditionally, integrated control methods (IPM) have been used, by combining the effects of chemical treatments, cultural management techniques, tolerant cultivars, and biological control. Although much research has been conducted on grapevine diseases in the past, the arrival of new knowledge, new methods, and new techniques (higher resolution molecular techniques, massive genome sequencing, image analysis, sensors, risk assessment models, etc.) opens the door to innovative control strategies.

Research articles, review articles, as well as short communications are invited. The aim of this Special Issue is to share new knowledge and scientific-based methods focused on any aspect related to the understanding and optimization of grapevine disease control.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agronomy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

This article emphasizes the crucial importance of yeast Meyerozyma guilliermondii (Patent CECT13190) as a biological control agent (BCA) in eliciting defensive responses in vine plants, and is supported by comprehensive physiological, proteomic, and transcriptomic analyses. The results demonstrate that the BCA M. guilliermondii can induce enhanced defensive responses, as reflected in the regulation of key proteins. Notably, the upregulated expression of calmodulin and pathogenesis-related protein 10 (PR-10) are indicative of a complex interplay between calcium signalling, salicylic acid accumulation, and the elicitation of plant defence responses against pathogens. Furthermore, changes in microtubule dynamics and proteins related to protein synthesis and folding are observed, confirming the elicitation of defence responses. The correspondence between proteomic and transcriptomic analyses for genes codifying pathogenesis-related proteins, such as Vcgns1, VviTL1, and Vcchit1b, reinforces the empirical robustness of our findings. Collectively, our research explores the modulation of plant defences by the BCA, opening promising avenues for innovative agricultural strategies that enhance crop resilience and productivity.
