Microbiological and agronomic study of vineyard soils

Vineyard management and a number of biotic and abiotic factors shape vineyard soil microbiota.

The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of different vineyard management and land use systems, which included: a) conventional management with tillage, b) grass cover between grapevine rows, and c) grapevines planted in rows running down the slope with inter row tillage, on the culture-dependent microbiota associated with the vineyard soils and some edaphic parameters of the studied soils.

From this study it can be concluded that the vineyard soil is a yeast reservoir that contains yeast populations above 104 CFU per g of dry soil, and that given a geographic location and a Vitis vinifera cultivar, the vineyard management strategy plays a pivotal role in the soil microbial composition.
