ERIAFF Conference 2014 Seinäjoki, Finland Enric Bartra, Researcher INCAVI, Spain "Sustainable practices in viticulture and ecology"

Transcript of Enric Bartra

  • WHAT IS INCAVI ? Public research centre for Catalan and Spanish viticulture and oenology Vilafranca del Peneds Reus Viticulture and Enology school, Sant Sadurn dAnoia
  • INCAVI Growers Suppliers Research centres Universities
  • PLANT MATERIAL and GENETIC RESOURCES (I) Identification and conservation of wine-growing heritage Selection and genetic improvement of varieties, evaluation of clones and multiplication of plant material Identification of Vitis vinifera varieties in Pyrenees area Sampling and identification of minority or endangered Vitis vinifera varieties
  • Detection, validation and cataloguing of traditional varieties of Tarragona AOs Study of traditional varieties from DOQ Priorat (CR DOQ Priorat, Clos Mogador) Characterization of Sumoll wines from Tarragona DO (CR DO Tarragona, Coop de Rodony) Assessment of the level of adaptation of the autochthonous and foreign varieties Study of agronomic and oenological behavior of minority autochthonous varieties: Picapoll n.,Trepat bl., Sumoll bl, Carinyena bl, Morenillo, Xarello vermell (All AO) Study of the inclusion of new varieties in the catalog of varieties classified in Catalonia: Caladoc, Tannat, Vermentino, Muller-Turgau, Incrozio Manzoni, Verdejo, Malbec, Marselan,... (All AO) PLANT MATERIAL and GENETIC RESOURCES (II)
  • VITICULTURAL PRODUCTION (I) Study of preservation techniques for soil sustainability Study of cover crop in the vineyard. EU REDBIO Adaptation of sheep grazing in vineyards UAB Reduction of pesticides use, phytotherapy Use of KDOS on ripening, fermentation and quality of wines. DuPont Improvements in spraying in vines. UPC Trials with Echisetum, Urtica and Thyme for fungal protection UAB
  • VITICULTURAL PRODUCTION (II) Effects of irrigation strategies Managing of irrigation for climate change, CDTI Irrigation monitoring for Cava production (Gramona, CDTI-CENIT Demter) Vine growth and its impact on wine Study on Nitrogen fertilization on vine and juice. (Gramona, CDTI-CENIT Demeter)
  • ORGANIC PRODUCTION Key points for organic farming Network on experimentation, exchange and development of organic farming transfer (EU "REDBIO")
  • Reduction on water, energy and pesticides use in wine industry Demonstration techniques on cleaning system Inoxpa and filtration with lower residues and lower water use (EU Winenvironment") Lower by 20 % the use of waste products in the vineyard, increase by 10% the treatment and the recycling of the waste, decrease the use of water in the cellar 30% (Winenvironment EU ECO/2008/239045)
  • SUSTAINABILITY and FOOD SAFETY "Best environmental available techniques for the wine sector Good practices in wine production based on HACCP system (Dept. de Medi Ambient i Habitatge, CERPTA-UAB) (ACSA, CERPTA-UAB)
  • INNOVATIONS IN PROCESSES (I) Study of technological pathways and their qualitative implications Microbiological stabilization of musts and sweet wines by applying high pressure (UHPH) (CERPTA-UAB) Study of the process of tartaric stabilization of wines and pH modification by cation exchange resins
  • Monitoring of malolactic fermentation by ultrasound Plan Nacional I+D+i: WINESONIC (DPI2009-14468-C02-01) (UPC - Enginyeria Electrnica) Study of the efficacy of a colloidal silver based complex in the process of wine and cava production Replacement of SO2 as antiseptic (Laboratorios ARGENOL) INNOVATIONS IN PROCESSES (II)
  • MICROBIOLOGY BIOTECHNOLOGY(I) Optimization of a yeast bio-immobilization system for innovation and improvement of winemaking and cava elaboration
  • Selection of microorganisms of oenological interest Isolation and selection of indigenous yeasts Isolation, characterization and maintenance of indigenous yeasts from organic and biodynamic vineyards Co-inoculation studies of LB, sequential inoculation (Lallemand, S.A) Enological study of yeasts and lactic bacteria (LB) in wine fermentations MICROBIOLOGY BIOTECHNOLOGY(II)
  • BioDiVine Demonstrating functional biodiversity in european vineyards
  • Biodivine Life+ Cover crops can be permanent or temporary, with spontaneous flora or seeded plants and may cover the vineyard soil completely or partially Diversified hedge rows to shelter small animals and offer food for bees, butterflies and birds Arbutus unedo Viburnum tinus Cornus sanguinea
  • Fallow areas with grass for open areas habitat Stone walls to shelter insects, reptiles and snails Grape moth pheromone instead of pesticide.
