Local Action Plan

Encouraging applied research aimed at: (a) the gradual introduction of new grapevine varieties that are more tolerant to abiotic and biotic stresses, (b) measures to reduce erosion and increase biodiversity, and (c) alternative ways of increasing the profitability of vineyards.

Research in viticulture will ensure knowledge and instructions for full transition to agroecology in Istria, focusing on clonal selection of autochthonous varieties, testing of resistant varieties, grassing inter-row spacing for weed control, increasing biodiversity and profitability through tourism, energy savings, and reducing plastic use.
