In 2018 and 2019 pot experiments were conducted with vines in order to test different substrates and nutrition amendments to prevent chlorose symptoms under lime stress conditions. The fertilizer BioAgenasol strongly promoted plant growth and root developments enabling the plant to cope with high lime stress situations much better as comparable fertilizers. The effects observed in pot experiments should now be tested in vineyards in order to determine if BioAgenosol has effects on vine and soil viatality. A direct translation of results from pot experiments to vineyards is not possible as vines are prennial plants. The presented project is a 2-year experiment in vineyards to determine effects of different fertilizers including BioAgenasol on vegetative and generative parameters of vines including fruit parameters.
