Biodiversity loss in agrosystems is partly due to landscape simplification (field enlargement, hedgerows removal…) that led to a loss of heterogeneity of the overall landscape.
Practices in viticulture have greatly evolved in the last five decades. There were three objectives: improvement in the quality of the products, reduction in the production costs through mechanization
Corvina and Corvinone grape berries grown in different areas and their aptitude to postharvest dehydration
The Valpolicella area (Veneto Region, Italy) is famous for its high quality wines: Amarone and Recioto, both obtained from partial post-harvest dehydrated red grapes.
Terroir effects on the response of Tempranillo grapevines to irrigation in four locations of Spain: grape and must composition
This work discusses the effects of soil and weather conditions on the grape composition of cv. Tempranillo in four different locations of Spain, during the 2008-2011 seasons.
Soil electrical resistivity measurement: from terroir characterization to within-field crop inputs management
Soil Electrical Resistivity measurement is a zoning tool used by soil scientists and agronomists in viticulture. Indeed, the measure enables to optimize pedological surveys
Precision viticulture: using on-board sensors to map vine variability and characterize vine trajectories
Precision viticulture consists in using ICT (Information and Communication Technology) to implement more specific and better targeted technical vine practices. With proxy-detection
