Crop Vulnerabilities: frost, drought, flooding, pests, and disease
A 3-year study … non-irrigated vineyard. Three treatments were compared: soil tillage, permanent resident vegetation, and permanent sown cover crop.
“We demonstrated that the potential of soil management practices to enhance soil functioning is restricted by soil type. “
Spatial and temporal changes to the water regime of a Mediterranean vineyard due to the adoption of cover cropping
This work shows how cover cropping can spatially and temporally modify the water regime of a vineyard, and how grapevine can partially adapt to limit water competition under certain conditions.
The following discussion is intended to help you interpret and understand laboratory soil and water analyses.
