Brief description: SOiLUTION SYSTEM aims at developing an integrated system of technologies and management approaches, environmentally and economically sustainable, to reduce soil erosion and improve soil in steepslope vineyards where hydro-geological risk is high. Innovative tools for topographical survey will be used, along with new instruments to monitor precipitation erosivity. Newly-designed, low-impact tractors will be developed to cultivate steep-slope vineyards, and innovative technologies to manage and consolidate terraced vineyards. Overall sustainability of the approach will be evaluated and improved. Principal results will be:

  • enhancement of environmental sustainability of vineyards agroecosystems in hilly and mountain landscapes, with special focus on the reduction of soil erosion risk;
  • minimization of the impact of cultivation practices, by the development of innovative technical solutions and tractors which will reduce soil load and compaction;
  • introduction of conservation techniques - sustainable and low-cost - for traditional artifacts aimed at reducing soil erosion;
  • development of an integrated management approach to combine production targets of farmers with preservation of environment and landscape.
