    ABSTRACT: Aims: A water stress index based on a water balance model was tested as a tool for classifying the water stress paths experienced by grapevines in various French Mediterranean vineyards. The relations between the index value and grapevine yield and berry quality (sugars, organic acids, anthocyanins) at harvest were investigated. Methods and results : A data set of 102 situations, each combining one location, one variety, one vintage and one water regime (irrigation or, most often, no irrigation), was collected for the study. The Fraction of Transpirable Soil Water (FTSW) was simulated by a unique-soil-reservoir water balance model at a daily time step. Five classes of water deficit were delimited from specific decreasing thresholds of FTSW over four periods between flowering and harvest. These thresholds were derived from predawn leaf water potential values because over decades, grapegrowers and researchers have shared references and built expertise by using this variable throughout the Mediterranean region. A water stress index resulting from the levels of water deficit reached at each of the four periods of the cycle was calculated. This index was correlated with yield per vine, berry weight, and berry sugar and organic acid contents but not with berry anthocyanin content. Conclusion : A simple water stress index, based on the water balance model, exhibited significant correlations with yield and berry quality for various cultivars and pedo-climatic conditions in Mediterranean vineyards. Significance and impact of the study : This water stress index is a valuable tool for explaining the variations in grape yield and quality of grape among various locations and years because it reflects the vineyard water stress history, in relation to rainfall regime and soil conditions. Improvement would come from the simulation of FTSW during winter, notably for soils of high Total Transpirable Soil Water. One potential application is the quantification of water stress change brought by irrigation in Mediterranean vineyards, and its relation to grapevine production.

    ABSTRACT: Aim: Grapevine is a traditional crop in Asturias (northern Spain). However, an important part of the varietal heritage of this region is still unknown. Great biodiversity was reported in previous surveys, with varietal identification being carried out via microsatellite markers. The aim of the present study was to confirm the previous genetic identification and provide the first description of the unknown cultivars. Methods and results : Forty cultivars were described in situ over a two-year period through 58 ampelographic descriptors. A model description was performed for each cultivar and great variability was found : white, red and rosé grape cultivars ; hybrids ; winemaking and dual-use (wine and table grapes) cultivars ; and some teinturier cultivars. Cluster analysis grouped cultivars with similar characteristics. Conclusion : Ampelographic description was complementary to molecular identification in confirming the identity of the studied cultivars. Moreover, unknown cultivars have been described for the first time. Complete characterization is necessary because these cultivars constitute valuable genetic resources for crop breeding programmes. Significance and impact of the study : Considering the limited number of accessions of the unknown cultivars and the replanting of old vineyards with vines approved by Cangas Quality Wine regulations, their conservation and study is vital to provide genetic resources for potential breeding or technological purposes in the future.

    ABSTRACT: Four sets of primers were used, belonging to DNA beta-tubulin and ITS regions. Samples were isolated from grey or green moulds on mature berries during five years on vineyards located on the Moselle valley of Luxemburg. Each strain was sequenced with each set of primer. Identifications were performed by comparing the obtained sequences with referenced sequences using several databases. The isolates obtained from the grey mould were identified as Botrytis cinerea, Mucor fragilis or Chaetomium globosum whereas on green mould, Penicillium expansum, Penicillium minioluteum, Cladosporium herbarum and Cladosporium cladosporioides were recovered. Identification may be impossible for two reasons: samples may not display a sequence of sufficient quality, which can tentatively be solved by cloning the PCR amplicon, or the data available on database may not be exhaustive enough to unambiguously determine the species. Therefore we suggest primers set for each species according to these limiting factors.
