Tools and opportunities to improve soil management in viticulture

Free online training course in the framework of the LIFE+ Soil4Wine project

The LIFE+ project SOIL4WINE “Innovative approach to soil management in viticultural landscapes” aims to develop new viticultural systems focused on achieving better soil management through providing cost-effective solutions.

Discover the innovative soil management tool and some examples of ecosystem services and sustainable farmers' compensation systems by participating in these two free Webinars.

INNOVATIVE AND INTERACTIVE TOOL FOR THE SOIL MANAGEMENT IN VITICULTURE 

Speaker: Sara Elisabetta Legler, Horta srl

October 24, 2019 at 16:00 (UTC+2)

To succesfully transfer the knowledge aquired within the project, an innovative ICT tool was developed. The tool supports grape growers in implementing and maintaining the best solutions (i.e., soil management practices) for mitigation of the negative effects of soil and environment problems in each specific situation. It is a stand-alone tool, meaning that it does not require the intervention of external experts (consultants, specialists, etc.), yet it allows farmers to self-evaluate their specific problem(s), take right decisions about the necessary mitigation measure(s), implement them following good agricultural practices and, finally, check the success of the intervention; it can therefore be considered a DSS.

Program:

  • Brief presentation of the LIFE+ Soil4Wine project
  • The main threats of soil in viticulture
  • Strategies to mitigate soil threats in viticulture
  • Innovative and interactive tool for soil management in viticulture

SUSTAINABLE VITICULTURE AND ECOSYSTEM SERVICES: AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AGRICULTURAL ENTERPRISES AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Speaker: Alessandro Bosso, ART-ER

October 29, 2019 at 16.30 (UTC+2)

The adoption of sustainable techniques in viticulture, such as grassland, green manure and hydraulic regulation, brings benefits not only to the farm, but also to the community and the environment. In fact, these practices generate positive effects on what are called "soil ecosystem services".

Program:

  • Definition of ecosystem services
  • Examples of vineyard ecosystem services
  • Estimates of biophysical and economic quantification of ecosystem services
  • Examples of sustainable farmer remuneration schemes
