    ABSTRACT: Aims: To detect and identify the cultivable microorganisms putatively associated with esca disease in representative Lebanese vineyards. Methods and results: Two field surveys were conducted in Lebanon in 2005 and 2007 to study the fungal community associated with grapevine wood lesions. A total of 68 vines showing typical esca symptoms were randomly sampled in 17 vineyards and cross sections were obtained of cordons and trunks. The shape and type of inner necrosis and discoloration were examined and isolations were made from the symptomatic wood. Isolation results showed that inner necrosis and isolated fungi were similar to those previously found elsewhere, namely in Central Europe or Mediterranean countries. Additionally, three methods for numerical evaluation of micro-organisms found were compared. Conclusion: Most fungal pathogens generally associated with grapevine trunk diseases were detected, of which the basidiomycete Fomitiporia mediterranea and species of the ascomycete family Botryosphaeriaceae were the most frequently encountered. Additionally, a large diversity of other wood colonizing micro-organisms was detected. The putative role of some of the obtained micro-organisms in the process of wood degradation related to esca disease is discussed. Significance and impact of the study: This isolation study is presently the most completed that was carried out with grapevine wood samples collected in Lebanon. Besides, it is the first to provide isolation results based on a classification of inner necrosis in five categories and to compare three criteria for numerical evaluation. This study also tends to further highlight that Botryosphaeriaceae species are common wood inhabiting fungi that should be associated with esca.

    ABSTRACT: Aim: The efficacy of partial root zone drying (PRD) and regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) on vine physiology, yield components, fruit composition and wine sensory profiles of 'Cabernet-Sauvignon' was investigated in a cool climate region in Ontario, Canada. Methods and results: Field experiments were conducted in a Cabernet-Sauvignon block in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON Canada between 2006 and 2008. There were five treatments : non-irrigated control, PRD, full irrigation [100 % of crop evapotranspiration (ETA and two levels of RDI (50 and 25 % ET,). Treatments started immediately after fruit set and continued until post-veraison. Soil and vine water status were apparently controlled not only by the amount of water but also by the irrigation strategy used. In the PRD treatments, soil moisture, leaf water potential, and transpiration rate were generally lower than in 100 % ET, but higher than non-irrigated and RDI treatments. Almost all treatments were different than in non-irrigated vines in fruit composition and wine sensory attributes. Wine sensory attributes differed considerably due to the amount of irrigation water applied in 2007. RDI strategies were more consistent than the PRO treatments in their effect on vine water status, grape composition and wine sensory profiles. Inconsistent patterns across seasons for some variables indicated that besides soil and vine water status, there were other factors that impacted vine physiology, yield components and berry composition. Conclusions: ROT treatments improved wine quality when compared with full or either non-irrigated treatments. Overall, use of ROT irrigation or PRO during dry and warm years can improve grape composition in cool climates. Significance and impact of the study: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first evaluation of PRO and ROT on Cabernet-Sauvignon in a cool humid climate. It suggests that although RDI strategies are more effective, PRO also has value, particularly in dry seasons.

    ABSTRACT: Aim: To use Remote Sensing imagery and techniques to differentiate categories of Burgundian vineyards. Methods and results : A sample of 201 vine plots or "climats" from the Cote d'Or region in Burgundy was selected, consisting of three vineyard categories (28 Grand Cm, 74 Premier Cm, and 99 Communale) and two grape varieties (Pilot noir and Chardonnay). A mask formed by the polygons of these vine plots was made and projected on four satellite images acquired by the ASTER sensor, covering the Cote d'Or region in years 2002, 2003 (winter image), 2004 and 2006. Mean reflectances were extracted from pixels within each polygon for each of the nine spectral bands (visible and infrared) covered by ASTER. The database had a total of 797 reflectance spectra assembled over the four images. Statistical discriminant analysis of percentage classification accuracy was made separately for Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune, and for each year. Results showed that for individual years and Cotes, classification accuracy for vineyard category was as high as 73.7 % (Beaune 2002) and as low as 66.7 % (Beaune 2003). There were no significant differences in accuracy between spring, summer and winter images. Classification accuracy for grape variety in Cote de Beaune over the four study years was between 73.5 % for Pinot noir climats in 2004 and 91.9 % for Chardonnay climats in 2006, including the winter image. Concerning the vegetation index NDVI, there were no significant differences between vineyard categories. Conclusions: Satellite data is shown to be functional to reveal vineyard quality. Spectral differences between categories of Burgundian vineyards are at least partially due to terroir characteristics, which are transmitted to vine and vine canopy. Significance and impact of the study : This work indicates that Remote Sensing techniques can be used as an auxiliary tool for the monitoring of vineyard quality in established viticultural regions and for the study of quality potential in new regions.

    ABSTRACT: Aim : The present study was conducted in grapevines to evaluate the influence of source/sink disturbance on reserve restoration in the entire plant (trunk, roots) and the consequences on reproduction, yield, sugar yield, potential alcohol content and total acidity over four successive years of treatment. Methods and results: At veraison, either total defoliation or total fruit removal was performed on Chardonnay plants grown in vineyards. The impact was measured each year on reproductive parameters and after four years on both plant weight and carbohydrate content. Defoliation induced an alteration in carbohydrate distribution in the entire plant, as revealed by decrease of starch content and parallel increase of soluble sugar content. These modifications affected the number of inflorescences/clusters per plant the year after. By contrast, fruit removal resulted in a significant increase of carbohydrate reserves in the whole plant, although the efficiency of sexual reproduction was not improved the year after. Conclusion: Results confirm the close correlation between carbohydrate reserves and the efficiency of sexual reproduction. Moreover, grapevine is able to adapt the number of both inflorescences and flowers according to the amount of available carbohydrate reserves in perennial organs. Significance and impact of the study: The quality of the crop is affected by defoliation, as shown by the decrease in yield and sugar yield. However, the impact on potential alcohol content and total acidity was less pronounced.

    ABSTRACT: Aim: To determine the effect of foliar sprays of processed mineral particles (micronized calcite, Megagreen (R)) on leaf water relations and photosynthesis in grapevines (Vitis vinifera L. var. Cot) grown under water deficit. Methods and results: Potted plants were grown in a glasshouse in summer under natural light (Toulouse, lat. 43 degrees 32'14.50 '' N; long. 1 degrees 29'44.25 '' W; altitude 148 m a.s.1.). Well-watered and drought stressed vines were foliar sprayed with various doses of micronized calcite. Leaf water potential, gas exchange (light-saturated CO2 assimilation rate, A(CO2); stomatal conductance, g(s)) and chlorophyll fluorescence (quantum efficiency of PSII photochemistry, Phi PSII) were measured. Water stress affected predawn and midday leaf water potentials, A(CO2), g(s) and 4:Phi PSII of the 40-day-old (younger fully expanded) leaves. Megagreen (R) application did not lead to appreciable changes in leaf water potentials but was able to mostly restore A(CO2) and Phi PSII in water stressed plants to levels of well-watered control plants. This effect was associated with a positive, although less pronounced, effect on gs. The beneficial effects of processed calcite particles were also observed on younger and older leaves, at low and high atmospheric vapor pressure deficit, and in the morning as well as in the afternoon. In well-watered plants, processed calcite particles had no effect on photosynthesis except under very high evaporative demand. In water stressed plants, A(CO2) was increased by increasing ambient CO2 concentration. At elevated CO2, calcite particles did not increase CO2 assimilation. Conclusion: Foliar application of processed calcite particles alleviated most of the adverse effects of water stress on grapevine photosynthesis. This was associated with enhanced gs in the whole plant canopy. Significance and impact of the study: In the context of climate change, grapevine will most likely experience long periods of drought during its seasonal cycle. Foliar application of processed mineral particles is widely used to reduce heat stress in perennial fruit crops. Here, the micronized calcite Megagreen (R) does improve photosynthesis of water stressed grapevines.
