Partial rootzone drying (PRD): strategic irrigation management as viticultural tool affecting plant physiology and berry quality

Partial rootzone drying (PRD) is an irrigation management technique designed to reduce water use in grapevines without a decline in yield, thereby increasing water use efficiency (WUE). The principle of PRD is to keep part of the root system at a constant drying rate to produce soil derived signals to above-ground plant organs to induce a

Screening of different commercial wine yeast strains: the effect of sugar and copper additions on fermentation and volatile acidity production

The aims of this study were to examine the effect of high sugar concentrations of must and copper residues on different commercial wine yeasts. Copper originating from pesticides has been known to inhibit yeast, but it’s effect on fermentation performance and VA production of different yeast strains had not been investigated in detail.
