We are starting phase 2 of the OPEN DIGIVINE project

The OPEN-DIGIVINE project is a collaborative network for digitalisation and agroclimatic monitoring that was born in March 2023 to offer an open data incorporated from the largest possible number of meteorological stations and soil and plant sensors, both public and private, located in different vineyards throughout Spain.

This project coordinated by Innovi, in which the AERTIC Cluster of La Rioja, we, De Haan Altés, also participate, together with other companies such as Encore Lab, Tamic, Roqueta Origen, the Fundació Parc Tecnològic del Vi and the Sant Llorenç – Penedès Superior Plant Defence Association; has a key objective, to mitigate the effects of climate change on wine production, taking advantage of technology to predict pests, reduce the use of phytosanitary products and optimise vineyard management. A leap forward in the digitalisation and agroclimatic monitoring of viticulture.

After more than a year, we are starting phase 2, which not only responds to the current challenges of the sector, but also opens the way to a greener and more sustainable future for viticulture in Catalonia.

On June 5, within the framework of the cycle of conversations with the agri-food clusters of Catalonia, the conference “Challenges and good practices of INNOVI, the Catalan wine cluster” was held, co-organized with the College of Economists, from its delegation in Tarragona.

At this conference, three projects from the sector were presented that provide answers to three major challenges: excessive bureaucracy, improving biodiversity and reducing the use of phytosanitary products, in which we were able to participate by presenting the OPEN-DIGIVINE project and the first results obtained.

Enric Sunyer, head of viticulture at the winery, explained how incorporating sensorization of the vineyard and the algorithms that use the data obtained allows us to reduce the number of phytosanitary treatments with the consequent reduction in environmental impact and expenses. The OPENDIGIVINE project aims to incorporate this sensor technology and share the data generated throughout the territory from open data.
