Soil Management

By understanding the soil resource, growers can take steps to keep it healthy, productive, and sustainable. The Soil Management chapter helps you determine what you need to know about managing your vineyard soil, how to assess nutrient needs, and how to manage the soil surface (using cover crops to reduce wind and water-caused soil erosion, reduce weed pressure, and improve soil organic matter). Topics include:
  • Managing Soil in New Vineyard
  • Managing Soil in Existing Vineyard
  • Plant Tissue Analysis
  • Soil Surface Management
