Saving Your Vineyard Money
If you choose our Vineyard Consulting Services in California it will save your vineyard time and money by implementing proven practices and focusing on precision nutrient management. Some of the ways our services benefit your vineyard include:
- Reducing disease and water use
- Ensuring correct nutrient control through soil analysis
- Improving crop nutrients
Testing and analysis at key stages of vine development improves:
- Photosynthesis - addressing nutrient deficiencies will produce complex carbohydrates and polysaccharides during photosynthesis. The vines move these compounds to the roots in the form of exudates. Complex carbohydrates and polysaccharides attract beneficial biology. Beneficial microbes create enzymes and outcompete soil borne pathogens.
- Nitrogen synthesis - addressing nutrient deficiencies and applying specific enzyme cofactors help to convert nitrate in the leaves to amino acids, and proteins. Improving nitrogen synthesis can eliminate the food source for insect pests that harm the vines. Poor nitrogen synthesis leads to a buildup of nitrate and ammonium in the leaves. Nitrate and ammonium are the food source for Mealy bug, Scale, Aphids, and Grapeleaf Skeletonizers.
