With Plantae tools you can save water and energy in vines.
Use of Plantae tools in vine cultivation
Here we show a very illustrative example of a vine crop in which irrigation water with very high salinity (3 dS/m) is used, and in which a treatment is carried out with a saline corrector.
In the first section (red shading) we can see how the humidity probe (yellow) is showing constant humidity and, on the contrary, the Electrical Conductivity line (brown) is a straight line that indicates nutrient blockage, In other words, the impossibility of extractions by the crop is appreciated. The second section (shaded in green) shows the response of the soil to the application of the saline corrector.
And we end with the third section (shaded in blue) that shows the activation of the root system, accentuating the consumption of water and nutrient salts.
Thanks to the probes of humidity and conductivity the effect of the saline corrector has been verified with graphs and data in real time.
Investment of technology in the cultivation of vineyards
This client installed the Basic service, 1 hub and 2 humidity probes in soil at 30cm and 60cm respectively measuring humidity, conductivity and temperature. Installation and soil analysis included in the price.
Later he added one more point with 2 probes and thus be able to repeat the applications in another irrigation sector.
In addition, once the use of precision agriculture technology began, he added the weather station with relative humidity, ambient temperature and rain gauge to monitor data in real time and possible pests.
Keys to a good vine crop
- Fase 1: desde la aparición de los brotes de la viña hasta la floración.
- La planta necesita un riego controlado. Si sufre estrés hídrico en esta fase los brotes lo manifiestan con un crecimiento irregular.
- Debemos observar la presencia de zarcillos tiernos y largos.
- Phase 2: from flowering to ripening or ripening of the grape.
- An excess of watering causes the branches to grow too much and the leaves cover the fruit excessively and impair ripening.
- If it suffers water stress due to lack of irrigation control, it influences the size of the fruit.
- Phase 3: from the veraison or ripening of the grapes until the harvest is collected.
- Now the vine needs very little water. An excess will produce cracking in the grape.
- Phase 4: from harvest harvest to vine dormancy
- Increase in water but not as much as in the first phase, so that the roots expand and the plant is strengthened for the next production. (+Info)
