Global assessment of grapevine microbiome function to promote sustainable vineyard management

Project description

Identifying sustainable functions of the global grapevine microbiome

Sustainability is an important goal for Europe's agricultural industry. Viticulture covers large portions of land and represents an important source of income for local economies. Given the impacts from intensive farming, we must now work to restore biodiversity and ecosystem function while increasing the margin of benefits for growers. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions FUNVINE project has two major objectives; the first is to identify and investigate the functional microbiome of grapevine roots and leaves from across the globe. Second, is to identify the capacity of the microbiome to benefit growers and habitats. FUNVINE will show how the mechanisms of grapevine microbiomes across regions, environmental gradients and varieties answer many of the greatest challenges to productive and sustainable viticulture systems worldwide.
