The project

Providing forecasts, estimations and recommendations to wine makers to optimise vineyard management processes

The VitiGEOSS project uses European Open Earth Observation services for the improvement of agriculture business operations at an economic, environmental and local level.

To do so, the project has developed an innovative vineyard management solution based on the integration of Earth Observation services and in-field sensors with the objective to increase the resolution and reliability of satellite information applied to the viticulture sector.

The innovative solution promoted by the project responds to future challenges of the worldwide food and wine industry, which requires to intensify the production in a sustainable way, mitigate the effects of climate change, reduce negative environmental externalities and promote local economic growth.

Start date – 1 September 2020
End date – 28 February 2024 (42 months)

Objectives

Pilot demonstrators

The solution of VitiGEOSS has been proved in three demo sites in Spain, Italy and Portugal, in which will be devoted a pilot vineyard for the project.

During the first year, those vineyards were used for the calibration of all services and in the second and third year, the services were tested, validated and deviations analysed for possible further corrections.
