In 1982, the grapevine, one of the most important fruit plants in the world, involved some 10,073,000 ha (Anonymous 1982), 70% being located in Europe. A little more than 100 years ago, in 1868, a small insect (Phylloxera vastatarix) arrived in France from America. It spread and, in a few years, destroyed the entire European vine industry. The lack of any chemicals able to control this pest made grafting the European vine onto the American vine necessary.
