Early likovrisi: the new white very early table grape seedless and resistant variety


Context and purpose of the study – This paper presents is the create, the study and ampelographic description the new «Early Likovrisi», that was created (2014) in Greece by Pantelis Zamanidis.  

Material and methods – The variety created by crossing with the hybridization method of the varieties “Talisman” and “Florina”. “Early Likovrisi” is a cross-breeding between American, Europeanand Far East (V. Amurensis).  

Results – The table grape variety is a seedless, early-maturing, and resistant. The time between budburst and grape maturity is 126-135 days. The variety is very strong with large shoots growth (2.1 – 3.0 m). The growth of shoots is higher over 95%. The percentage of the fruitful shoots is greater than 90%. The yield is high more than 30–40 t / ha. The average weight of the cluster is 800 gIt has high resistance to fungal diseases, insects, high resistance to low temperatures, high resistance to drought and tolerant in Phylloxera compared to other varieties of Vitisvinifera.. The shoot and the tip of the young shoot are green-colored and hairless. The mature leaf is medium size, symmetrical, and five hardlobs. The flowers are hermaphrodite. The cluster is high sized, conical, winged and of medium density. The berry is big – average berry weight 7 gr – with a sort elliptical shape, green-yellow color, and medium skin. The taste of the berry pulp is characteristic of the «Early Likovrisi» variety. The content of sugar is high. Berry seeds are present but not developed. The «Early Likovrisi» variety is suitable for table grape production.  Can be used in the genetic improvement of Vitis viniferavarieties as a resistance donor, for fungal diseases, insects and low temperature

Double success of combining technical management with low pesticide inputs in the vineyard to obtain PDO wines in France

Viticulture is a major contributor to the antagonism of positive reputation and negative environmental impacts of agriculture. Vine contributes to structure landscape in the world, resulting, for example, in the delimitation of protected designations of origin (PDO). PDO vine is currently subject to the double challenge of sustainability and climate change adaptation. As vine is very sensitive to diseases and pests, vine requires a high use of pesticides to achieve its quality and yield goals. This high need for pesticides is the most important negative impact of environmental components.

Grapevine responses to red blotch disease – a structural-functional perspective of symptomatology development and fruit quality

Red Blotch disease caused by Grapevine red blotch-associated virus (GRBaV) is a severe concern to grape growers and winemakers in major grape-growing regions worldwide. One key aspect of all viruses, including Red Blotch, is their intimate association with cell components and anomalous structures following infection. Therefore, the objective of this study was to analyze symptomatology, vine function, fruit quality and ultrastructure of various tissues and document the relationship of ultrastructural cytopathology with the GRBaV infection in Pinot Noir and Merlot employing various microscopy techniques.

Relations entre critères sensoriels et analytiques des vins et des vendanges de Cabernet franc issus de terroirs et de millésimes différents en Val de Loire. Essai de caractérisation de la typicité

En France, la notion de Terroir a largement contribué à la réputation de nombreux vignobles. Elle a permis aussi d’accentuer la sensibilité des consommateurs, à la notion d’origine d’un produit. L’avenir de nombreux vignobles français semble lié à la capacité à innover en produisant des vins de qualité possédant en plus une typicité, aspect sensoriel susceptible de s’affirmer comme un facteur de vente auprès des futurs clients éduqués sur le plan du goût.
