Soilution Systems Project

Soilution System. Innovative solutions for soil erosion risk mitigation and a better management of vineyards in hills and mountain landscapes

STATUS: concluded

PERIOD: 2019 – 2022

PARTNER: WBA Project srl

THE PROJECT

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 steep-slope 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.

PURPOSE

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