The project objectives are to implement an IT platform capable of integrating the technologies developed by research institutes. The aim is to create a service to support winemakers in order to reduce the cost of purchasing pesticides, to improve the quality of the final product, to safeguard the quality of the agricultural environment and protect the health of winegrowers.
The Ecovino project was experimentally developed in the Frascati DOC area and managed by an association, Associazione Produttori Uve Frascati / Cooperativa Antiche Terre Tuscolane.
At the beginning, the project was developed for a sample of producers (beneficiaries of the project), using different methods of information dissemination (internet, e-mail, SMS).
The platform benefits from phenological forecasting models provided by the research institutes and high-resolution weather forecast models that are calibrated for the area covered by the project.
These aspects will provide services to the winegrowers and others in the winemaking sector in accordance with the end user needs.
The beneficiary is ‘Cooperativa Antiche Terre Tuscolane – CATT.
