Endemic, they staunch growth of the vinestock and foliage, while irreversibly traumatizing berry quality.
Normal cultivation calls for grape growers to implement radical treatment in order to ensure a minimum harvest. All the same, such extreme and harmful action does not always guarantee good results. Their secondary effects generally reduce wine quality while harming the environment.
The environmental-farming Méthode Cousinié® takes a new look at the nature of the balances between nutritional functions, vinestock vigor and berry quality.
Our applied research, carried out for the past thirty years by our Méthode Cousinié agronomists, has irrefutably shown the close relationship between nutrition, assimilation of organo-mineral nutrients, and resistance to endemic vine diseases.
This concept has found a specific response in every vineyard for which we are responsible: leaf spread efficiency, fewer diseases (thus fewer curative measures), and increased quality of berries and wines.
We have measured the beneficiary effect of all this by toting up the nutrient input we have provided, and the apparent or analyzed diseases for the same cultivated lands. The balance is highly positive as regards our nutritional solutions. Wine growers can consequently envisage improved management of their Soil Nutrition plan, which assesses benefits so as to improve vine handling.
