Optimising vine nutrition and fertilisation for yield and quality – Practical Workshop in Somerset
Understanding, monitoring, and managing vine nutrition is important for productivity including crop yields, fruit and wine quality. Vines have certain nutrient requirements and deficiencies are common but not always recognised – and multiple deficiencies are hard to diagnose. This ’hidden hunger’ can limit productivity, affect the health of the vine and the quality of the wine.
This workshop will focus on nutrient management, include assessing nutrient status of the vine and ascertaining the best methods for supplying the vines requirements. This may include improving soil health, to provide effective nutrient cycling and availability, considering cover crops, improving organic matter, and using fertiliser additions.
