Vineyard Floor Management

Vineyard Floor Management encompasses a wide variety of tasks, all dealing with the vineyard soil and soil surface.  These tasks are identified by location within the vineyard, as well as, purpose which can vary greatly due to soil, topography, and our client’s philosophy.  Northwest Vineyard Service implements numerous cultural practices and uses a wide array of tools available to our industry.

Cover crops selection and maintenance choices vary greatly. These covers have different water requirements, and contribute varying amounts of organic mater, color, or even nitrogen (in the case of legumes) to the soil.

Vineyard floor management can have a subtle influence on vine growth, and careful management can feed, dry, or add structure to the soil that sustains the vineyards.
