Green manure: a valid natural aid
At the beginning of winter, in the months of October or November, the green manure is sown.
In the picture you can see how far it is these days. It is a mixture of seeds of various essences (broad bean, vetch, mustard, barley, etc.) that have different characteristics and different purposes. Some serve because they have deep roots that open and move the earth while others are sources of nitrogen. In spring, usually with flowering, the nitrogen fixation cycle ends and the time comes to cut the green manure and bury it in order to fertilize the land along the vineyards in a natural way. No chemical fertilizer but only the one that derives from this practice of good responsible agriculture.
