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.

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".


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