Background: Despite their importance as a reservoir of biodiversity, the factors shaping soil microbial communities and the extent by which these are impacted by cultivation are still poorly understood. Using 16S rRNA gene and ITS sequencing, we characterized the soil microbiota of vineyards and of neighboring permanent grassland soils in the Ital...

Context and purpose of the study – Promoting sustainable agricultural practices has been one of the challenges of the last decades. Organic and biodynamic viticulture could be considered an alternative to intensive viticulture, furthermore contributing to reduction of impact on the environment and human health and guaranteeing soil preservation and...

The adoption of green manure practices in organic agriculture is increasingly spreading. This work aims to prove whether winter green manure—when compared to a traditional mineral fertilizer— alters the dynamics of inorganic nitrogen (NO 3⁻ and NH 4⁺ ) availability in soil and the yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN) in grape musts. During a two-year p...

Nowadays, organic agriculture is catching on all over Italy in order to reduce the impact on human health and environment, and prevent soil degradation. We are conducting a study on an apple orchard (Gala cv.) in Valsugana (Trentino Alto Adige, Northern East Italy), with the overall aim of comparing conventional and organic agronomic management. M...

Accumulo di rame su foglie e grappoli ESPERIENZE IN TRENTINO NEL 2016. A parità di superficie trattata il rame si accumula maggiormente sulle foglie rispetto a rachidi e bacche interne e non esposte.

Aims: The aim of this work was to investigate the effects of biodynamic management with and without the addition of green manure, in comparison with organic management, on the microbiota in vineyards soil. Methods and results: High throughput sequencing was used to compare the taxonomic structure of the soil bacterial and fungal communities from...
Article
The grapevine is the most widely cultivated and economically important fruit species worldwide. Downy mildew produced by Plasmopara viticola, which occurs throughout the wide, is one of the most destructive of all grapevine diseases. In organic farming, copper is the only product effective against this pathogen accepted under European organic farmi...

FIRST OBSERVATIONS ON THE LIFECYCLE OF THE WALNUT HUSK FLY (RHAGOLETIS COMPLETA) IN TRENTINO-ALTO ADIGE AND ON THE CONTROL STRATEGIES Rhagoletis completa is one of the major pests of nuts in the area of Bleggio (Trento province). In this area, the biology of this carpophagous insect was studied from the summer 2013 through 2015. Adult presence was...
Article
Aims: We compare the evolution of the microbiota of grapes grown following conventional or biodynamic protocols during the final stage of ripening and wine fermentation in a year characterised by adverse climatic conditions. Methods and results: The observations were made in a vineyard subdivided into two parts, cultivated using a biodynamic and...
Article
Vineyards cover about eight millions of hectares worldwide and their annual pruning generates a large amount of ligno-cellulosic biomass, potentially available for industrial and energy use. Commercial pruning residue harvesters are now available, which may allow cost-effective recovery. The study aimed at determining the quantity and the quality o...

Comparison of cluster thinning techniques in Pinot noir in Trentino. Trials 2004-2005. Key words: hand thinning, cluster cutting, gibberellic acid. The effects of several techniques to decrease grape production were investigated in comparison with untreated control vineyards. Manual cluster thinning, cutting the distal part of the clusters, and c...
Article
In Italia da qualche anno si sta assistendo ad un calo di interesse per la viticoltura biologica. Molteplici sono le cause, come emerge da un’indagine condotta presso 25 aziende trentine e 15 pugliesi. Una delle maggiori difficoltà sul mercato è dovuta all’impossibilità in Italia di denominare il vino con il termine “biologico”. È fondamentale stab...
Article
In 1993, control failures were reported on grapevine in northern Italy under severe downy mildew pressure after postinfection application of cymoxanil in mixtures with copper or mancozeb. A monitoring survey was started immediately in Piedmont (north-western Italy) in order to determine the sensitivity of populations of Plasmopara viticola to cymox...
