DEFINING LAND AND VINTAGE IRRIGATION REGIMES
Jean-Christophe PAYAN ; Élian SALANÇON
Vine growers are often worried with the availability of water when facing summer drought which is often the case in the Mediterranean.
This attitude is more pronounced than one of the technical solutions, such as irrigation which is highly controlled during the vegetative cycle of the vine. In all cases the knowledge and diverse observations converge to the need that water constraints (in moderation) during the season will produce a grape harvest of high quality. It is therefore necessary to develop methods that will allow one to know the levels of moistures in the soil to meticulously know the quantity of the supply and how long it will last.
