Innovative pathogen-resistant cultivars and biodiversity: new opportunities for viticulture of tomorrow

Online training course in the framework of the ValorinVitis project

ValorinVitis is an Operational Group that aims to enhance and expand the viticultural biodiversity of Colli Piacentini wine district through research and innovation, increasing the resilience of the production system to climate change. 

Discover how pathogen-resistant grape varieties and the enhancement of biodiversity can change the viticulture of the future, by participating in these two free Webinars.

INNOVATIVE PATHOGEN-RESISTANT CULTIVARS: PRODUCTIVE PERFORMANCE AND DEFINITION OF DISEASE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES

a. Productive performances and fruit composition of the innovative pathogen-resistant cultivars – Tommaso Frioni (Università Cattolica el Sacro Cuore di Piacenza)

b. How to integrate in grapevine protection the new resistant varieties – Tito Caffi (Università Cattolica el Sacro Cuore di Piacenza)

December 10, 2019 at 16:30 (UTC+1)

The adoption of pathogen-resistant cultivars represents a promising solution to increase vineyard sustainability and competitiveness. The Emilia-Romagna region funded project ValorInVitis evaluated the adaptation of these new genotypes to the pedo-climatic conditions of the Colli Piacentini wine region across two seasons. The trial focused on the productive traits and the main components of resistance towards the key pathogens of the area exerted by ten disease-resistant cultivars. Specific study cases will be presented about how to integrate the new information and knowledge obtained in order to define innovative disease management strategies.

Program:

  • Identity of the new disease-resistant genotypes
  • Productivity and ripening trends
  • Principal components of resistance of the studied cultivars
  • Development of innovative and integrated strategies for disease management

ENHANCEMENT OF NATIVE AND LOCAL GRAPE VARIETIES IN THE CONTEXT OF CLIMATE CHANGE

a. Grapevine biodiversity, a valuable resource to face climate change-related vineyard issues – Tommaso Frioni (Università Cattolica el Sacro Cuore di Piacenza)

b. Identification and discrimination of grapevine cultivars genetic profile – Matteo Busconi (Università Cattolica el Sacro Cuore di Piacenza)

December 18, 2019 at 16:30 (UTC+1)

Vineyard sustainability is impaired by the negative effects on grapevine physiology and fruit ripening related to climate change. The traditional and innovative plant material available represents a relevant chance for a wine district to evolve and adapt, according to the environmental conditions. The three-year project ValorInVitis tested traditional and autochthonous cultivars, new crossings and innovative rootstocks as a source of innovation in the scenario of the Colli Piacentini wine district, whose competitiveness is currently strongly affected by warming trends. The performances of the different genotypes was evaluated together with their adaptation to different environments within the region. Finally, the genetic identity of each genotype was assessed with the most modern methods available in grapevine biotechnology.

Program:

  • Autochthonous cultivars, minor varieties, new crossings and new rootstocks for tomorrow’s viticulture
  • Adaptation of local cultivars to different pedo-climatic conditions, the case study of the Colli Piacentini wine district
  • How to study the genetic heritage of a minor/traditional grapevine cultivar
