In today’s article we will focus on continuing with the series of texts focused on the work in the fields and its importance in the production of a good wine.

Once the vines have been pruned during the winter, and before they begin to bud, it is necessary to remove the shoots deposited on the ground in order to avoid possible damage to the vines.

To carry out this task, we can do it in two ways:

On the one hand, we can shred them. To do this we will go through a machine that collects them, crushes them inside and expels them in chips of 3 or 4 cm. In this way they are incorporated into the soil as vegetable matter, which will result in a contribution that will improve the organic richness of the soil.

On the other hand, the other option is to use a kind of rake dragged by the tractor, in which the vine shoots are piled up inside. Once filled, it holds them until they are taken to a bank where they are thrown away or burned.

Finally, we would like to emphasize that if there is no major pest or disease in the shoots that advises their elimination, it is preferable to crush them and incorporate them into the soil as an organic amendment for soil maintenance.

That said, here ends another article focused on field work.
