This is part 2 of my viticulture series. If you haven’t heard part 1, go back to episode 98. However, if you are ready for part two, we are going be looking at rootstocks and clonal selections, then a little bit on vineyard design, how you choose your trellising for the vines. And in fact, training that vine, once you've done that. A small section on preparing your soils and then what you can do during the year, such as green harvesting and leaf stripping. You can choose to plant cover crops, put in an irrigation system, and you will most likely have to deal with pests and funguses, so this is discussed at the end giving a run down of what agrochemical farming is down to organics and then biodynamics.
