Why is soil structure so important to vine growing?
Soil has good structure contains a balance of solid particles to pore space. There are equal volumes of large pores and small pores. With a good balance, roots can grow easily through the pores, water and oxygen can also move through without hindrance.
Soil with poor structure will result waterlogging in vineyards, vine roots are unable to grow deep and have to continue to grow horizontally. We help you to analyze the soil structure and ensure it is suitable for vine growing.
Soil compaction is the process by which soil structure is broken down by mechanical working of the soil. The major disadvantage of soil compaction is the restriction of root penetration and the supply of water and oxygen. We help you to analyze if your soil is compacted and offer you amelioration strategies.
