In the course of the restructuring of the Austrian agriculture companies are made to develop new strategies. In this aspect two possibilities are available to wine-growing companies. On the one hand, one can be try to protect the economic efficiency of the company through sufficient amount. On the other hand the income is protected by the production of the highest quality coupled with higher prices. In order to be able to compare the amounts of work involved in both production philosophies, well-chosen works were examined in 2007 on a test company in the Weinviertel. In this context the working hours of manual works were measured with the kinds of Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt in the positions slope and level by three different persons. Working hours of machines available in the test company became ascertained. They were supplemented by necessary equipment and by friendly companies. Generally a significant influence could only be ascertained at the work breaking off by the person. The position slope or level did not prove a significant influence in any case. However, the kind significantly influenced the required working hours, of every operation. Finally it can be held on a rule that the production of quality-tested wine claims a substantially higher application of working hours. Especially for the production of increased quality unavoidable job, like thinning out and the stripping of leaves, significant by higher working hours were proved. Necessary with some other works like the stripping of leaves or cleaning the trunk the application of a machine can help save a multiple of working hours. The influence of the kind may also not be neglected. Above all, the grape form and size very strongly influence the extremely costly thinning out of the grapes. In the vegetation period the working hours of all carried out works can be strongly reduced by optimum and intensive application of machines.
