ACTION PLAN AGAINST DECLINING VINEYARDS
UNDERSTANDING THE DETERMINANTS AND IMPROVING THE CONTROL OVER THE PRODUCTION
OF QUALITY VINES TO ENSURE THE LONGEVITY OF VINEYARDS
The purpose of the Origine project is to propose elements of scientific and applied knowledge to improve the quality of vine plants and the rate of resumption of grafting.
Its ambition is to propose indicators to assess the quality of plant material in the broad sense and to identify ways to improve plant production processes and planting methods to ensure sustainable vineyard productivity.
It also aims to ensure the transfer of information between the different actors in the sector, to help ensure their training, as well as to raise the level of expertise for this key stage of wine production.
The priority themes addressed in this project are :
the link between carbon and nitrogen reserves and successful grafting and planting,
the definition of tools for studying and modeling the root development of plants,
the development of methods for studying vascular connections at the graft point,
the influence of biotic and abiotic factors on the decline of the young plant and the setting up of experimentation on the production of the plants and their planting.
