EFFECT OF CLIMATIC PARAMETERS ON UVOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF VARIETY ’BLATINA’
AbstractThe winegrowing hills of Mostar as part of the Herzegovinian winegrowing region have always been considered suitable for grapevine cultivation, mostly as a result of favorable soil and climatic conditions. Herzegovina is home to a range of ancient grapevine varieties assumed to be indigenous to Bosnia and Herzegovina, with only few of them being commercial. 'Blatina' is the most important indigenous variety in Bosnia and Herzegovina intended for red wine production. It develops functionally female flowers, and the success of its fertilization is largely dependent on climatic conditions. This paper provides the results of an analysis of major bunch and berry characteristics conducted over a three-year period. Research findings indicate a significant effect of environmental conditions on some uvological traits of the bunch and berry.
