Riqualificazione dell’antica “Terra di Lavoro” attraverso il rilancio della cultivar Abbuoto


[English version below]

L’agricoltura dei territori costituenti l’antica “Terra di Lavoro”, territorio che oggi è compreso nella provincia di Caserta ed in parte di quelle di Frosinone e Latina, ha subito a partire dal 1970, un’involuzione, principalmente a causa dell’urbanizzazione; solamente la coltivazione della vite ha mantenuto nel tempo la sua consistenza, ed in particolare della cultivar Abbuoto.
Nel presente lavoro si è studiato questo vitigno autoctono, ed il vino relativo, analizzando anche la possibilità, attraverso il suo rilancio, di riqualificare nella globalità questo importante territorio. Ciò ha suggerito l’urgente necessità di proporre un progetto che tenga conto del fatto che la presenza del vitigno Abbuoto rappresenta per il territorio una grande opportunità di crescita e di sviluppo socio-economico, inserendolo in un progetto di sviluppo turistico.

The agriculture of territories of the ancient one “Terra di Lavoro”, territory that today it is inclusive in the province of Caserta and partly of those of Frosinone and Latin, has suffered, beginning from 1970, an involution, mainly because of the urbanization; only the cultivation of the grapevine has maintained in the time its consistence, and particularly of the cultivar Abbuoto.
In the present job is studied this autochtonous vine and the relative wine, also analyzing the possibility, through its raising, to retrain, in the globality, this important territory. This has suggested the urgent necessity to propose a project that keeps in mind of the fact that the presence of the vine Abbuoto represents for the territory a great opportunity of growth and social-economic development, inserting it in a project of tourist development.

Predatory Arthropods associated with potential locally-adapted native insectary plants for Australian vineyards

Three locally-adapted native plants were evaluated to determine their capacity to provide insectary benefits to predatory arthropods in association with vineyards, and thereby to enhance biological control of insect pests. Native plants are preferred as supplementary flora, as they are naturally adapted to Australia’s climatic conditions.

Vintel: a single decision support system for irrigation, fertilization and disease management of grapevine

Vine growers face an increasing number of decisions, both tactical and strategic, in a context where available data and constraints are on the rise, such as resources, societal, environmental, climatic, and economic factors. This has led to a growing supply of decision support systems (DSS) and softwares to manage vineyards. Facing this new complexity, growers must now consider several options: giving up the use of DSS, using systems that are compatible with each other but may limit their options, or using a single system that may be too complex to use effectively. In this context, itk has expanded its Vintel® tool, which was originally designed for grapevine water status management (irrigation, inter-row, cover-crop, etc.), to include fertilization and disease management.

Extreme canopy management for vineyard adaptation to climate change: is it a good idea?

Climate change constitutes an enormous challenge for humankind and for all human activities, viticulture not being an exception. Long-term strategic changes are probably needed the most, but growers also need to deal with short-term changes: summers that are getting progressively warmer, earlier harvest dates and higher pH in musts and wines. In the last 10-15 years, a relevant corpus of research is being developed worldwide in order to evaluate to which extent extreme canopy management operations, aimed at reducing leaf area and, thus, limiting the source to sink ratio, could be useful to delay ripening. Although extreme canopy management can result in relevant delays in harvest dates, longer term studies, as well as detailed analysis of their implications on carbohydrate reserves, bud fertility and future yield are desirable before these practices can be recommended.

Application of high-resolution climate measurement and modelling to the adaptation of New Zealand vineyard regions to climate variability

Initial results are presented of research into the relationship between climate variability and viticulture in New Zealand vineyards. Atmospheric modelling and analytical tools are being developed to improve adaptation of viticultural practices and grape varieties to current and future climate.

Effects of stress memory on grapevine resilience in response to recurrent drought and recovery events 

Plants have evolved different strategies to cope with environmental stresses and, although still debated, it was observed that they can remember past stress occurrence.
Anatomical and physiological adjustments have been observed in different grapevine cultivars after repeated drought exposure, however epigenetic, transcriptional and biochemical changes associated with drought-primed ecological memory have been poorly studied.
This work was conceived to test whether exposure to recurring events of mild drought could prime vines to endure severe drought stress. Particularly, we investigated whether the expected improved stress tolerance of Vitis vinifera cv Nebbiolo plants subjected over years to moderate and long-lasting water stress events (WS-primed) depended on molecular memory phenomena or on resetting of stress-induced signals.
