On 1 February 2017, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) participated in the 9th Luxembourgish Viticulture Day. This event, organised by the Luxembourgish Fédération Viticole and the Institut Viti-Vinicole, put in the spotlight an activity whose presence in Luxembourg dates back to Ancient Roman times.
LIST researcher Daniel Molitor gave a talk on the result of the Terroir project that studied the influence of the vineyard terroir on the typicity of Luxembourgish Riesling wines.
LIST presented, through its REACH&CLP Helpdesk Luxembourg, a stand on the labelling and safe use of plant protection products that was visited, among others, by the Minister for the Environment Carole Dieschbourg.
LIST operates the REACH&CLP Helpdesk Luxembourg, which supports Luxembourgish companies to comply with the European Regulations REACH (registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals) and CLP (classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures). Through these essential actions, LIST also contributes to make agriculture and viticulture more environmentally friendly. This leads to a healthier quality of life, which benefits to all Luxembourgish citizens and inhabitants.
