Identification of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi species preferentially associated with grapevine roots inoculated with commercial bioinoculants 

Abstract

Context and purpose of the study – Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) form symbiotic associations with plant roots and can help plants acquire nutrients from the soil in exchange for photosynthetic carbon. Commercial bioinoculants containing AMF are widely available and represent a potential opportunity to reduce the dependence of grapevines on agrochemicals. However, which commercially available AMF species colonize vine roots and affect vine growth remains unknown. The aim of this study was to identify the AMF species from commercial bioinoculants that colonize grapevine roots using high-throughput sequencing, and to evaluate the performance of five commercial bioinoculants and their effects on own-rooted Cabernet sauvignon.

Material and methods – Two-year-old own-rooted Cabernet sauvignon vines were potted into a non-sterile orchard-collected soil and placed in a greenhouse. The silt loam soil was low in available nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and organic matter and had a neutral pH.  Pots were inoculated with one of five commercial bioinoculants. Root length colonized by AMF, petiole nitrogen concentration, plant biomass and root morphology were evaluated. The  AMF community present in the grapevine roots growing in non-inoculated (control) and inoculated soil were profiled using high-throughput sequencing of 18S and ITS2 rRNA gene regions.

Results – The proportion of roots colonized with AMF fungal structures significantly increased for plants in inoculated soil, but the degree of colonization differed among commercial bioinoculants. Petiole nitrogen concentration increased and carbon to nitrogen ratio decreased for plants in inoculated soil. Shoot and root dry weight were increased for plants in inoculated soil when compared with plants in non-inoculated soil. Root diameter decreased and root length density and specific root length increased with greater AMF root colonization for plants in inoculated soil. The most predominant genus of AMF species from commercial bioinoculants colonizing roots in the inoculated soil was Rhizophagus, Glomus and Funneliformis, while Diversispora, Paraglomus, and Mortierella showed a low relative abundance respectively. A high relative abundance of the genus Glomus and Rhizophagus were found in roots of plants growing in the non-inoculated soil controls while Funneliformis, Paraglomus and Mortierella  were less predominant. Interestingly the  endophytic fungus Mortierella from the order Mortierellales is considered as a beneficial root colonizing fungus. These results suggest that the native AMF community of non-inoculated soil controls had limited effect on grapevine adaptative traits while inoculated soil with commercial bioinoculants containing specific species from the genus Glomus and Rhizophagus can modify root traits under soil nutrient deficiency and may be considered an alternative to replace chemical fertilizers .

Impact of some agronomic practices on grape skins anthocyanin content

Wine colour is the first quality characteristic to be assessed, especially regarding red wines. Anthocyanins are very well known to be the main responsible compounds for red wine colour. Red cultivars can synthesize and accumulate anthocyanins in berry skin to express their colour. However, anthocyanin accumulation is often influenced by a series of factors, such as genetic regulation, phytohormones, environmental conditions and viticultural management.

Traditionally, this grape has been used to mix with other varieties, to produce poor quality wines, but today is beginning to be used in the production of high quality wines. However, very little is known about the chemical characteristics of this variety.

Ageing of Sauvignon Blanc white wines with Specific Inactivated Dry Yeasts: Effect on physical and chemical characteristics

Del Barrio-Galán, R.a, b, Gómez-Parrini, A.a, Peña-Neira, A.b a Lallemand Inc. Chile y Compañía Limitada, Rosario Norte 407, piso 6, Las condes, Santiago, Chile b Department of Agro-Industry and Enology, Faculty of Agronomical Sciences, University of Chile, Post Office Box 1004, Santa Rosa 11315, La Pintana, Santiago, Chile It is well known that polysaccharides, mainly mannoproteins, play an important role on physical, chemical and sensory quality of wines. The ageing of white wines on lees is used in order to release higher amounts of polysaccharides by the autolytic processes in order to obtain higher-quality wines. However, this technique is too slow, because the temperature and pH conditions are not the most suitable for this process. In addition, it can also involve certain disadvantages such as a greater demand on winery resources, a longer period of wine storage, the appearance of reduction notes and some microbiological alterations.

Effect of ageing with Specific Inactivated Dry Yeasts on the volatile composition of Sauvignon Blanc and Carménère wines

Chile y Compañía Limitada, Rosario Norte 407, piso 6, Las Condes, Santiago, Chile The wine is a complex matrix made up of several compounds which can interact among themselves throughout the wine ageing process, thereby modifying their sensorial characteristics. It is well known that during ageing of wines on lees, polysaccharides (mainly mannoproteins) can be released and can interact with the aromatic fraction modifying its volatility.

New molecular evidence of wine yeast-bacteria interaction unraveled by untargeted metabolomic profiling

Bacterial malolactic fermentation (MLF) has a considerable impact on wine quality. The yeast strain used for primary fermentation can consistently stimulate (MLF+ phenotype) or inhibit (MLF- phenotype) malolactic bacteria and the MLF process as a function of numerous winemaking practices, but the molecular evidence behind still remains a mystery. In this study, such evidence was elucidated by the direct comparison of extracellular metabolic profiles of MLF+ and MLF- yeast phenotypes. Untargeted metabolomics combining ultrahigh-resolution FT-ICR-MS analysis, powerful machine learning methods and a comprehensive wine metabolite database, discovered around 800 putative biomarkers and 2500 unknown masses involved in phenotypic distinction.
