Ferticover Vineyard

VINES WITH MORE LIFE

BIODIVERSE SEED MIX FOR SOIL COATING
Features

Strict selection of species taking into account:

  • Their vegetative cycle so that they don't compete with the vines for water
  • Soil and climate characteristics
  • The demands of culture
  • The needs of each winemaker
Reasons to sow

An exponential increase in total biodiversity through the introduction of targeted plant biodiversity

  • Improved balance of insect populations, preventing the development of pests such as cicadas and spiders
  • Greater diversity of soil micro-organisms, resulting in healthier, more fertile soils with greater potential to reflect all the characteristics of the terroir in the wine
  • Greater global diversity of macro and microorganisms, reducing the need to apply phytopharmaceuticals

Better and easier transit for machines and people

  • Interventions in the vineyard at any time, reducing losses caused by delays in treatments or other operations

Managing strain vigour

  • Different formulas with different types of plants and different cycles make it possible to increase or decrease the vine's vegetative vigour

Greater resilience of the vineyard to climatological phenomena

  • Soil that is covered and richer in organic matter has a better infiltration and water retention capacity, reducing water stress in times of drought and reducing periods of waterlogging.

Enhancing the Landscape

  • Facilitates the association of the enormous environmental value of the wine produced and boosts wine tourism activity

Carbon and atmospheric nitrogen fixation

  • Less dependence on chemically synthesised fertilisers
  • A truly regenerative agriculture that improves all environmental compartments: soil, aquifers and atmosphere
  • Essential in carbon footprint neutrality programmes

Effective weed control by competition

Economic gains by reducing fertiliser, phytopharmaceuticals and soil tillage

FERTICOVER VINEYARD RANGE

LEG

Composed exclusively of leguminous plants, it contributes to raising the level of soil fertility

LEGRA

Balance of legumes and grasses, ensures all the coating objectives are met without altering soil fertility levels

GRA

Composed exclusively of grasses. Recommended when the soil is excessively fertile and/or the vines/vines have high vegetative vigour.
