The aim of the ‘Viticulture’ Research Group is to breed disease-resistant varieties, to make the most of the clonal biodiversity of the traditional varieties and to test plant material (varieties, clones, rootstocks). The Group also develops growing techniques that allow for a significant reduction in the use of plant-protection inputs as well as the balanced management of soils and of water and mineral input with a view to maintaining or improving product quality, the economic viability of the proposed solutions and the sustainability of the viticulture sector.
