of nutrients in a managed system. This research has focused on quantitative

To a large extent the influence of the soil on the grapevine is determined when
the vineyard site is selected. However, there are several opportunities for
growers to reduce or overcome soil- related problems such as acidity, salinity,

These are discussed later in this section. Understanding soil structure Soils are
made up of mineral particles, organic matter, water, air and living organisms. It is
