Growing processes are conditioned by environmental factors such as temperature, solar
radiation, humidity and rain. Thermic conditions are strictly involved in all physiological
processes affecting phenological and physiological development. Climate and the vineyard management determine quality and quantity of the final product and guide strategies and behaviour of the farmer.
In this context, identifying a stable correlation between climate conditions, plants growing and production quality allow the development of automatic systems for vineyard management.
SIGEVI project develops, tests and implements innovative DSS – Decision support systems – starting from data collection (historical, from remote sensor networks, from the farmer using mobile systems), data elaboration and a user friendly feed-back – to support everyday decisions about vineyard management (irrigation, pruning, harvesting, productivity evaluations, phyto-pathologies defense strategies…).
