Begrünung

Term for the deliberate sowing and/or allowing of suitable plants in the vineyard between the rows of v ines. This measure is almost obligatory within the framework of organic viticulture in organic or integrated plant protection. A cover crop protects against erosion, favours the formation of humus, enriches the microbiological soil composition with organic nutrients, creates positive water competition with the vines and thus reduces yields, ensures better water storage and drainage and thus optimal water balance, reduces nitrate leaching, causes less susceptibility to diseases such as chlorosis, fungal diseases, stem par alysis and trickling, reduces the amount of mineral fertiliser required and creates food supplies for beneficial insects and birds.
