Grapes like to grow without neighbors, but protective crops are grown around the perimeter to protect the grapes from the wind. After each season, the grapes need trunk mulching and anti-aging pruning. Soils under vineyards should have good drainage. Natural Resources and Science SIA has experience in applying SatoSoil® improvers with humic and fulvic acids in open grounds for table varieties vineyards.
Growing grape rootstocks and choosing the right scions is an activity that requires special attention and care, the longevity and fruiting of the entire vineyard depends on it. Young saplings need special vine-training system and fruit-bearing scapes with trellises. Grapes begin to bear fruit in the third year and yield crops up to almost 30 years. When propagated by cuttings, fruiting can be extended for over 100 years.
Grafted intensive vineyards don’t withstand the entire life cycle and bear fruit up to 8-9 years, and then the orchard is re-planted. When replanting the garden and uprooting the previous trunks and roots, top dressing of the fruitful layer with SatoSoil® pHoenix conditioner is required, which corrects the acidity of the soil and neutralizes nitrates and ammonium salts.
Complex biostimulators SatoGrow®, SatoHum® Potassium soap, macro and micro nutrition SatoHum®, the raw material for which is a peat-sapropel mixture from environmentally friendly sources, effectively protect grapes from pathogens, fight insect pest attacks, gradually release minerals. The compositions of Natural Resources and Science SIA contain useful humates, oxyhumates, humic and fulvic acids, have a healing bactericidal and fungicidal effect, increase looseness and buffering of soils, improve ripening and fruit filling.
