Sustainable water and soil management for resilient viticulture


The OIV joins forces with the Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), working through the Institute of Zaragoza, to bring an immersive course in water and soil management in viticulture. Mark your calendars for July 1 to 6, 2024, as the CIHEAM Zaragoza headquarters hosts engaging sessions, both in person and online.

The program follows an applied approach, integrating lectures with practical examples, case studies, and a roundtable discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to present case studies on water and soil management in vineyards from their respective countries, contributing to a collective learning experience.
