Thank you “Dosłońce” vineyard for the possibility of presenting the following practical vegetation tests
“Natural coverings from the frosty northern and eastern winds have been added to my vineyard with a willow belt from the west.
Thanks to this, it can be considered that the vineyard is located in the so-called “Warm zone” on the south-western slope, with an average slope of 15 °, at a height just below 350 m above sea level.
This is confirmed by the parameters: GDDC and active days in the year, measured with the use of two Efento logger devices, about 100m away.
|GDDC upper part [°C]
|GDDC lower part [°C]
|No. of active days upper part
|No. of active days lower part
As you can see, the season 2018 was unusual. If you count GDDC until the time of grape harvest in September, then the parameters would be, respectively, less: GDDC ~ 1500 and active days ~ 175. It’s still a lot.
Without information on the actual GDDC / SAT values and active days, it is difficult to make a decision on the vine species in a particular vineyard.
In addition, any change in the accumulation of a vineyard or cover can be assessed for its impact on habitat conditions. “
