Which potential for Near Infrared Spectroscopy to characterize rootstock effects on grapevines?


Developing rootstocks adapted to environmental constraints constitutes a key lever for grapevine adaptation to climate change. In this context, Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) could be used as a high-throughput phenotyping technique to simplify the study of rootstocks in grafted situations. This study is an exploratory analysis to evaluate the potential of NIRS acquired on grafted tissues to reveal rootstock effects as well as the plasticity of combinations of scion/rootstock to better characterize these interactions.
Through the study of 25 combinations (5 scions times 5 rootstocks) in a dedicated experimental vineyard, we showed that NIRS obtained from grafted tissues capture rootstock and scion/rootstock interaction signals, up to 20% of the total variance at specific wavelengths. Yet, the scion effect on the spectra remains dominant over the rootstock effect, which is also the case for agronomic traits. Using NIRS data on dried leaves, which were found to best capture the rootstock effect compared to measurements on wood or fresh leaves, spectral wavelengths specific to the rootstock effect could be identified.
Predictions at the vine level carried out on twenty-eight phenotypic traits showed that those related to phenology and vigor being were better predicted. Three spectral regions were consistently identified as contributing to predictions and to differences between scion/rootstock combinations. Using data from these regions yielded predictive models as accurate as those built with the entire spectral range, underlining that NIRS capture useful information related to the combination rootstock/scion which opens prospects towards the possibility of using this methodology in a breeding context.

Irrigation frequency in four grapevine red varieties in Spain. Effect on must volatile composition

The irrigation water management in the vineyard is a crucial aspect to obtain sustainable quality production over time. Previous studies have set the water requirements to be applied in the vineyard at 30 % of the reference evapotranspiration (ET0), although there are no studies that settle the effects of the frequency of irrigation application on red varieties in Spain. The present study contemplates the application of deficit irrigation (30 % ET0) applying a weekly dose in a single irrigation (T07) or in two irrigation events (T03) per week. The study has been carried out in 2021-2022 with four red varieties in different Spanish wine regions: Garnacha Tinta (Badajoz), Tempranillo (Valladolid), Syrah (Albacete) and Mencía (Lugo). The effects of irrigation frequency on must volatile composition have been evaluated through GC-MS.

Polyphenols in kombucha: Metabolomic analysis of biotransformations during fermentation

Kombucha is a non-alcoholic beverage made of sugared tea that is transformed by a symbiotic consortium of yeasts and bacteria. This beverage is increasingly produced at industrial scale, but its quality standards remain to be defined. Metabolomics analysis was carried out using FT-ICR-MS to understand the chemical transformations induced by the production phases and the type of tea on

NIR based sensometric approach for consumer preference evaluation

Climate change has had a global impact on grape production, and as a result, developing table grape varieties that can withstand climate-related threats has become a significant goal. However, it is equally important to ensure that these new grape varieties meet the preferences of consumers. To achieve this goal, a procedure has been developed that combines sensory analysis with spectroscopic data collected in the NIR region. Each sample was analyzed using both traditional analytical techniques and non-destructive NIR spectroscopy.
