Summary of Research Projects:

The Vitis CIDA team deals with many aspects related to the viticultural production within the context of Sustainable Agriculture: the effect of both the environmental conditions and the cultivation techniques on the vineyard.

The research projects carried out by the VitisGESTION team are related to:

  • The relation between soil management sustainability and the quality of the vitivinicultural production, dealing with: The relationship between the terroir and the grape and wine quality. Viticultural zonification. Soil cartography.
  • The preservation of genetic resources of grape varieties of the D.O.Ca. Rioja. Agronomic and enological characterization of new and minority grape varieties within the D.O.Ca. Rioja.
  • Strategies for vine rational fertilization. Diagnosis methods to assess the nutritional status of the vineyard. Evaluation of different viticultural and agroalimentary residues as fertilizers or organic soil amendments.
  • Strategies for an efficient water management in the vineyard. Relations between water management, vineyard production, and must and wine quality.
  • Preservation and management of vineyard soils. Cover crops and mixed techniques used for soil quality preservation.
  • Vine training systems. Yield management strategies and shoot vigour control. Enhancement of leaf and bunch microclimate.
