The first article about OchraVine Control Project was published by Elsevier on Computers and Electronics in Agriculture journal, under the title “Development of thermography methodology for early diagnosis of fungal infection in table grapes: The case of Aspergillus carbonarius”.
The article underlines the advantages of infrared thermography in early disease detection, caused from the filamentus fungi Aspergillus carbonarius which causes sour rot of grapes and produces Ochratoxin-A.
According to the results, the average grape berry temperature was significantly lower in the infected berries during the development of the fungal mycelium compared to the healthy, while the maximum temperature difference increased during the fungal colonization compared to the healthy berries that stayed constant.
