After a first year of service, the Mas Numérique, a project led by Montpellier SupAgro and fourteen companies specialized in digital agriculture, opened its doors. From the vineyard to the cellar, commercialized technologies are put in synergy on a 35 ha estate.
Carried by Montpellier SupAgro and supported in a patronage framework by the companies Smag, Vivelys, Pera-Pellenc (Pellenc Group) and UK, as well as ten other partners specializing in digital agriculture, the digital Mas is an exemplary connected vineyard, using the most successful technologies on the market for their production.
The sugar loading of grape berries (changes in the amount of sugar per berry) has been widely described by Prof. Deloire in the last decade. It is a physiological marker that integrates how the vine functions in its environment. Interpreting sugar loading curves provides winegrowers and winemakers with real-time monitoring of grape aging, at the plot, vineyard and regional levels.
