VINIoT at SmartAgriHubs!

VINIoT at SmartAgriHubs!

We are delighted to announce we will be participating in the upcoming SmartAgriHubs’ Final Event in Lisbon, Portugal!

Next 27th September 2022, we will be talking about our achievements and the lessons learnt.

This is yet another action to spread the VINIoT project as a way to incorporate more prominent actors into the VINIoT Hub.

You can also visit us at the stand where you can discover more about the project

If you want to know more about the event take a look at the Agenda.

See you there!

viniot journey la rioja

VINIoT Journey at La Rioja. Application of new technologies in viticulture. Practical demonstration in the vineyard

The aim of the dissemination day “Application of new technologies in viticulture” is to present new technological solutions applicable to the wine sector and, in particular, the developments obtained in the Interreg SUDOE VINIoT project. There will also be a practical demonstration of the VINIoT system in vineyards.

The VINIoT project is a collaborative project involving entities from Spain, Portugal and the south of France for the creation of a new technological service for monitoring vineyards that allows small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the wine sector to control their plantations in real-time and remotely.

water stress publication

New article on water stress detection has been published

Our partner INRAE has just published an article on water stress detection. This paper is called Physiological variable predictions using VIS–NIR spectroscopy for water stress detection on grapevine: Interest in combining climate data using multiblock method.

Download article here.

Some highlights to resume information are:

  • Physiological variable predictions were predicted using VIS-NIR spectroscopy
  • A water stress gradient was obtained using vine pots of three varieties
  • A multi-block regression method called SO-PLS is used
  • Models are established with PLS and SO-PLS including all vine varieties
  • Model performance of transpiration is improved using climate data
