L’Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée « Huile Essentielle de Lavande de Haute Provence »


Depuis des siècles, la lavande est utilisée pour son parfum et pour ses vertus thérapeutiques naturelles.
La cueillette de la lavande sauvage s’est développée à grande échelle dans les montagnes calcaires de la Provence à la fin du 19e siècle. L’écoulement de la production s’effectuait presque exclusivement vers la ville de Grasse, cité des parfumeurs.
Progressivement, la culture s’est substituée à la cueillette dans les années 1930.

Mapping and tracking canopy size with VitiCanopy

Understanding vineyard variability to target management strategies, apply inputs efficiently and deliver consistent grape quality to the winery is essential. However, despite inherent vineyard variability, the majority are managed as if they are uniform. VitiCanopy is a simple, grower-friendly tool for precision/digital viticulture that allows users to collect and interpret objective spatial information about vineyard performance. After four years of field and market research, an upgraded VitiCanopy has been created to achieve a more streamlined, technology-assisted vine monitoring tool that provides users with a set of superior new features, which could significantly improve the way users monitor their grapevines. These new features include:
• New user interface
• User authentication
• Batch analysis of multiple images
• Ease the learning curve through enhanced help features
• Reporting via the creation of colour maps that will allow users to assess the spatial differences in canopies within a vineyard.
Use-case examples are presented to demonstrate the quantification and mapping of vineyard variability through objective canopy measurements, ground-truthing of remotely sensed measurements, monitoring of crop conditions, implementation of disease and water management decisions as well as creating a history of each site to forecast quality. This intelligent tool allows users to manage grapevines and make informed management choices to achieve the desired production targets and remain profitable.

A comprehensive ecological study of grapevine sensitivity to temperature; how terroir will shift under climate change

Fossil fuel combustion continues to drive increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide, consequently elevating the global annual mean temperature and specifically increasing the growing season temperatures in many of the world’s most important wine growing regions (IPCC 2014; Jones et al 2005). Grapes are sensitive to changes in growing season temperatures, and past models have shown a direct link between warming temperatures and earlier harvest dates (Cook and Wolkovich 2016). Globally, there have been shifts of 1-2 weeks for wine growing regions (Wolkovich et al 2017 and references within). The phenological shifts resulting from growing season temperature increases are documented internationally, and models predicting phenology using temperature are becoming more precise (Parker et al 2011).

Utilisation de données historiques pour caractériser le millésime en cours

Cet article propose la formalisation d’un modèle paramétrique pour représenter l’accumulation des sucres dans les baies de raisin durant la maturation. Le test de ce modèle sur des jeux de données réels a permis de valider l’approche proposée. Une seconde partie est axée sur l’adaptation de la méthode pour permettre la simulation du comportement du millésime en cours dès les premiers relevés de maturité. Ce travail possède de multiples applications dans le domaine de l’aide à la décision.

Productivity, quality, and thermal needs of the Piedirosso vine: four years of observations

The effects of temperature on cv Piedirosso, indigenous of the Campania region (South of Italy), were tested in order to study its possible influence on grapevine and to discover how to optimize the qualitative expression

Partial rootzone drying (PRD): strategic irrigation management as viticultural tool affecting plant physiology and berry quality

Partial rootzone drying (PRD) is an irrigation management technique designed to reduce water use in grapevines without a decline in yield, thereby increasing water use efficiency (WUE). The principle of PRD is to keep part of the root system at a constant drying rate to produce soil derived signals to above-ground plant organs to induce a
