The ongoing climate change leads to a growing number of extreme events such as drought periods resp. torrential rain. The viticulture on steep slopes suffers in particular: increased soil erosion and increased water stress are two main risks to deal with.
VinEcoS therefore will develop innovative and climate adapted viticulture methods which contribute to higher biological diversity and optimized eco-sytem services in the vineyard. The project will concentrate on following questions:
1. Which cultivation means lead to higher biological diversity in the vineyard?
2. How are eco-system services affected?
3. How could we optimize these services in a ecological resp. economic sustainable way?
