Joanah Midzi is currently a PhD student working on a project entitled 'Intervine signalling via plant volatiles'. The project hypothesises that stressed vines may emit volatiles that could induce defence responses in non-stressed receiver vines. The aim of the study is to investigate plant-plant volatile-mediated communication in grapevine under water stress conditions. The study will assess whether volatile cues from stressed source vines are able to prime defence responses in non-stressed receiver vines for a faster and /or effective responses for future stress challenges. The findings from this work may be used by viticulturists and winemakers to improve on vineyard cultivation and management by manipulating specific outcomes in their vineyards using various source vines or possibly other plants.
