Abstract

Biostimulants are organic compounds which can influence the biochemical activity of the whole plant. Lately, great attention has been focused on the possibility of using these stimulants in the viticulture sector. Due to this, the aim of this work was to investigate the foliar application of a biostimulant made by Fabaceae tissue, rich in amino acids and peptides along with the high presence of natural triacontanol (C30H62O) (>6 mg kg−1), previously reported in many crops as chemicals able to stimulate different yield components, the technological composition of musts still having an effect on some of the microbial population of different fruits/crops. Hence, this research was conducted during the growing seasons 2020 and 2021 in a commercial vineyard of the ‘Ribolla Gialla’ grapevine (Vitis vinifera, L.), in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (North-Eastern Italy), in order to understand the effect on this woody perennial crop not yet investigated. After a two-year-study, a physiological response occurred, as ripening and veraision were brought forward in the treated plants as well as the harvest time, having higher enological parameters (sugars, total titrable acidity and citric acid content) than the non-treated at every stage. Thus, grapes in the treated plants reached a full technological maturity earlier than the non-treated, in both study years. There was a positive effect on must microbial ecology important for winemaking, hence, the biostimulant have promoted the growth of the microbial community on berry skin translating into what found in the must.
