- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Higher temperature during the season is forcing growers in Central Italy to explore ways to reliably control vine yield and grape ripening, while maintaining grape composition. The most common approaches include altering winter pruning, shoot thinning (St), leaf removal and bunch thinning. These studies, however, rarely evaluated these practices in concert and over multiple se ...

- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Di‐1‐p‐menthene, a film‐forming antitranspirant, is reported to impede transpiration by acting as a physical barrier to water vapour loss from plant tissues. We tested this assumption on grapevine leaves across a range of temperature as well as on the bunch rachis and berries at several developmental stages. METHODS AND RESULTS: Gas exchange of Shiraz leaves was monitored at 2 ...
