Nutrition Farming® Vineyard Guidelines
NTS has developed highly successful strategies for wine grape production. Learn how to increase plant health, optimise flowering and improve fruit quality.
- Pre-flowering foliar sprays to maximise fruit-set.
- Crop monitoring techniques to determine optimum fertiliser applications, potentially reducing inputs and lowering costs of production.
- Techniques to optimise the benefits of soluble fertilisers while reducing their harmful effects, e.g., high salt and/or acid content.
- Tips to boost plant health and resilience to frost damage, and minimise the use of chemical pesticides.
- Soil Therapy™ and Plant Therapy™ services backed up by qualified agronomists.
NPK plus chelated trace elements and natural plant growth promotants for broad-spectrum nutrition.
Amino chelated calcium and boron. Excellent prior to flowering, combined with Nutri-Kelp™, and when fast-calcium is required.
Use in pre-flowering sprays and ground applications prior to veraison for improved root health & beneficial microbe promotion.
Regular applications ensure optimum vine health and resilience.
A natural plant growth promoter which acts as a photosynthesis enhancer and can improve brix/baumé levels.
Testimonials“After researching alternative frost control options and reading about Pseudomonas fluorescens, I decided to trial Sudo-Shield™ on two frost-prone vineyards that I co-lease in Coonawarra. At a total cost of less than $70/ha it was by far and away the best investment I have made into these vineyards. I have absolutely no doubt that if it had not been for the application of Sudo-Shield™ we would have lost at least 50% of our 2014 grape yield.”– Mary Kennedy, Narracoorte SA
Testimonials“I've had a great year with Vine-Tech Triple Ten™, which I call "Spray on Green", because it allows me to improve the leaf colour and manage the active canopy without stimulating vegetative vigour, which would detract from the fruit quality. I will be including the product in all my clients' programs from October each year. Once they know what fruit load they have on the vines, the plan is to use Vine-Tech Triple Ten™ to hold the leaf condition, provide an active canopy that is pumping out carbohydrates and filling the fruit.”– Liz Riley, Hunter Valley
Testimonials“The clover is the result of a 4/20™ bacterial brew we applied to several vineyards at the beginning of last season. It is my opinion that to achieve this we also have impacted very significantly on a lot of other components of the growing cycle. For example, this crop was almost a month earlier to harvest than the previous year. First in the valley as apposed to being the last. The winery picked his block on flavours rather than brix as the flavour were so good and were staggered at the quality, which was poor the previous year. The early harvest also removes some of the threat of early autumn rains and frosts. The list could go on and on! This result has been repeated on all of the vineyards we treated with 4/20™ microbes.”– Barry McMillan, NZ
Testimonials“Tony Barich – producer of Pennyfield, Wine – has found that Photo-Finish™ boosts colour of fruit, with growers 5 points higher on average for colour based on 3 well-timed sprays.”– John Norton, NTS Distributor
Testimonials“It is the most exciting project we have ever had happen in our farming life. To have somebody care about our soil and follow up has been very helpful.”– Alick Beggs, Reedy Creek
Testimonials“I was simply astounded at the results. There was a massive fruit set … we harvested 250% more fruit than the previous season and fruit size was just as good as other years.”– Peter Cochrane, Cowra
Testimonials“Instead of the typical hard crust, the soil became moist and friable, and the smell was fantastic – I know there is a long way to go with this soil, but changes are already happening. Who would have thought I’d be seeing worms back in my soils again so soon!”– John Traill, Liverpool Plains
Testimonials“I now believe that this is the first time I have seen genuinely healthy mango trees. These trees are now firing along with fantastic flushes even though they are still sitting in water. I just can’t believe it. I didn’t think it was possible.”– Robert Pucciarmati, Dundee Beach
Testimonials“The trees were incredibly healthy and far more balanced than in previous seasons. There was less nitrogen sponsored wood growth resulting in a 75% reduction in pruning requirements and even the weed pressure has decreased significantly.”– Peter Cochrane
