RIDGING – RIDGERS – HALF-RIDGERS

Preface

For ridging, the objective might be different:
Avoid frost at the base of the vine, by creating a mound that covers the trunk of the vine.
Drain away excess water to prevent the vines from stagnating in the humidity during the winter (depending on regional hydrometric differences).
Bury weeds and grasses so that they will rot. This operation can be repeated several times a year.
Dig a furrow as deep as possible in poor terrains in order to add soil-enriching agents (manures.)
Improve soil structure and aeration for microbial activity.
To facilitate a deeper soil environment and to optimize the water supply of the vine.
