Counting grape bunches using deep learning under different fruit and leaf occlusion conditions

Introduction

Yield estimation is very important for the wine industry since provides useful information for vineyard and winery management. The early yield estimation of the grapevine provides information to winegrowers in making management decisions to achieve a better quantity and quality of grapes. In general, yield forecasts are based on destructive sampling of bunches and manual counting of berries per bunch and bunches per vine. This traditional approach does not provide accurate estimations because the sample of the vineyard cannot represent all the variability that may be present in the plot. These techniques are time-consuming, expensive, and labour-intensive (Martin et al., 2003). The number of bunches per vine is the most important of the yield components, explaining 60% of average field yield variability, while the number of berries per bunch explains 30% and berry weight explains 10% (Laurent et al., 2021). In this regard, precision viticulture has brought new opportunities for yield monitoring and prediction, taking advantage of the new sensors, platforms, and modelling techniques.

Nowadays one of the most common and successful techniques for monitoring the amount of fruit in viticulture has been computer vision. Several applications and methods have been reported in the scientific literature (Mohimont et al., 2022). Computer vision systems have been used to estimate grapevine yield at different phenological stages, such as budbreak (Liu et al., 2017), flowering (Palacios et al., 2020), pea-size (Palacios et al., 2022), and harvest (Xin et al., 2020). The computer vision techniques used for bunch detection are mainly classified into three classes: i) colour-based thresholding and colour features (Hacking et al., 2020), ii) active contour segmentation (Xiong, 2018), and ii) pixels segmentation (Íñiguez et al., 2021). In general, computer vision has shown good results for bunch detection; however, the results of these techniques are highly influenced by image acquisition conditions such as background effects and light conditions and intrinsic conditions of the grape canopies such as bunch occlusion (Íñiguez et al. 2021). In this context, new artificial intelligence techniques can help us to solve these problems. Deep learning methods have proved to be very effective in object detection (Fuentes, 2017). This novel technique has shown promising results for bunch detection and counting in grapevines (Sozzi et al., 2022).

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.

Characterization of Glycosidically Bound Aroma Compounds of País cv. grapes of different Chilean zones

Spain c Department of Agro-Industry and Enology, Faculty of Agronomical Sciences, University of Chile, Post Office Box 1004, Santa Rosa 11315, La Pintana, Santiago, Chile País grape has been estimated to arrive to Chile almost 500 years ago, being the first strain grown in this country. 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.
