The combination VINTEC® and mycorrhization, allows you to opt for our highest quality standard.
In order to ensure an excellent development of the vines and a better capacity to resist the attacks of the fungi responsible for wood diseases we can apply these 2 products :
Since 2009 our entire nursery is mycorrhized. Mycorrhization is kept for the entire life of the vine.
To avoid the use of chemicals, we are interested in an alternative method and APPROVED IN ORGANIC AGRICULTURE. Mycorrhization is a SYMBIOSIS : The plant feeds the mushrooms, and in exchange, the mushrooms feed the plant.
Our plants are mycorrhized directly at the nursery to have a better success rate.
Mycorrhization has many advantages:
improvement of the volume of soil explored by the roots
better recovery at planting
significantly improved drought resistance
improved resistance to certain diseases, such as root rot
improvement of the mineral absorption:
Phosphorus and trace elements (zinc, iron, copper, magnesia, potash, manganese, ...).
This product based on Trichoderma can be applied at the production stage to reduce the fungus populations responsible for wood diseases. Since 2018, on request, we are able to inoculate our vines.
