The PIWI organic growing method can be summarised by advising it is the acronym for the German Pilzwiderstandsfahig ( meaning the German for grapevines that are resistant to fungal diseases) This is not genetic engineering, instead it is a disease prevention practice of crossing European Vitis Vinifera( wine grapes) with American “vitis” or “vines”.

Those familiar with the phylloxera devastation of the late 1800s will understand the connection and research here as 99% of European Vitis( vines) were wiped out by the phylloxera aphid at that time.

Prevention is better than cure! And the association of “PIWI International” founded in 1999 has set its target to to promote prevention of fungal diseases through these crossings.
