Ecological fertilization for vineyards
23 de February de 2021
Viticulture is the science of growing the vine or grapevine, for making wine or for using its grapes for natural consumption. The viticulturist, through a set of agronomic practices and techniques, is the person in charge of carrying out these tasks. Viticulture is a branch of the science of fruit growing.
Ecological viticulture is the branch of ecological agriculture dedicated to the cultivation of grapes in an ecological way and to be considered ecological viticulture, a group of techniques for managing the soil, the vineyard and the environment must be met. cape.
Nowadays, the term ecological and sustainable viticulture is very present in our society, a concept that seeks to respect the environment without affecting the quality of our crops.
We could define sustainable viticulture as the way of carrying out viticulture in a manner consistent with the principles of sustainability, that is, an economically effective, socially equitable and ecologically tolerable model.
Ecological viticulture is not only the substitution of synthetic chemical products for others allowed by ecological production, if it does not require practices such as changes in the production system, improving the natural fertility of the soil, reducing waste, optimizing production methods, all to conserve and protect the environment and that there is economic viability.
A healthy and quality vineyard depends to a large extent on the fertilization that is carried out, it also makes more sense if possible when it comes to a product as precious as wine. Through fertilization, the nutrients necessary for the development of the vines are provided.
Nitrogen influences the winemaking process. We must consider that yeasts need nitrogen (among other nutrients) and the organoleptic quality of the wine is proportional to the proper functioning of the fermentation, and this to a correct nutrition of the yeasts.
The phosphorus needs in the vineyard are much lower than those of N and K, for this reason the presence of deficiency symptoms is not very frequent.
Potassium plays an important role in photosynthesis, carbohydrate translocation, and protein synthesis.
