Grape Farming in India
In India, the grape is grown in subtropical, hot-tropical, and moderate tropical climates under various soil and climatic conditions.
Well-drained loam to sandy loam with good organic matter is the ideal soil type for grapes. Poorly drained, alkaline soils must be avoided.
The best time to plant rooted cuttings of cultivated varieties is September-October, while the best time to plant rootstocks is February-March.
Pruning should be done in January each year while the vines are still dormant.
Fertilizers and Manures
The weeds receive plenty of irrigation, food, and sunshine in vineyards that use the Kniffin and head method, allowing them to grow. Therefore, weed control is essential.
Pests used in Grape Farming
Flea beetles, thrips, mealy bugs, and leafhoppers are the most significant pests in grape production in India.
