Experimental Nets for a Protection System against the Vectors of Xylella fastidiosa Wells et al.

The Arrigoni Group Research Department takes another big success!

In fact, it was published in the scientific journal “Agriculture” – published by MDPI – the article Experimental Nets for a Protection System against the Vectors of Xylella fastidiosa Wells et al.

The article reports in detail the results of the SiProXyNet project, in which the entire Arrigoni Group – through its Sister Company Sachim srl – played a decisive role in collaboration with the Universities of Bari, Foggia and Salento.

In the SiProXyNet project it has been tested the ability of some of the best Arrigoni agrotextile nets to retain the insect Sputacchina, a vector of Xylella fastidiosa. The results were extremely encouraging, indicating in the Arrigoni protection networks a very effective tool to control the epidemic.

«Thanks to those who provided their support and expertise at all levels – comments the Group’s CEO, Paolo Arrigoni – thanks to those who have collaborated with commitment in the long run for this research project and its subsequent international publication».
