A key factor in the selection of suitable grape varieties in viticulture when establishing new vine stocks (see Vine establishment plan) is, among other things, their resistance to pests (microorganisms, animals, fungi), diseases or their pathogens and environmental conditions such as climate, weather and soil type. This is crucial to ensure long-term success and productivity.

In addition, factors such as the desired yield, the quality of the resulting wine and the care required in the vineyard such as fertilisation, foliage care and harvesting (grape harvest) must also be taken into account. The topic also plays a role in plant protection, as organisms that are undesirable in the vineyard can develop resistance to plant protection products over time due to improper application.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
