Grape Castel Winery – Ethiopia

Situation

[ references ]

The main problems were:

The presence of nematodes in the soil damaging plants which have just been planted and delaying the first yields by several years

Irrigation water is pumped from the river, then filtered and dispensed through a piping network

Irrigation is done using a drip system

In order to find a solution to these problems, Castel Winery decided to evaluate the Aqua-4D® system’s effectiveness in increasing production.

Solution

[ references ]

A study was carried out by comparing the output obtained on two plots, one irrigated with water not treated with Aqua-4D® (NT) and the other irrigated with water treated with Aqua-4D® (TT).

The TT and NT plots are planted with Chardonnay. They have respectively a surface of 4.98ha (NT) and 6.78ha (TT).

Results
