Rose in the vineyards is an ancient tradition. In technical jargon the rose is called spy plant. That is, pink is a plant that first manifests the symptoms of possible attacks of phytopathic and phytoopathic pathologies, presence of parasites, but also mineral deficiencies deriving from the soil. At one time, the vintners planted them in the rows of vineyards to protect their vineyards, as the roses were “sentries” as the first were affected in case of illness. This allowed wine growers to take timely action on the problem to prevent crop damage. The roses were therefore routed to the rows, mainly for monitoring and control, so it was easier to keep in control the biological cycles of insects and mushrooms, thus implementing the best defense.
