Pruning weight, yield and the sugar content from three different vineyard management systems (biodynamic, organic and integrated) have been compared in Geisenheim (Germany) over a period of seven years. No significant differences have been detected between the organic and biodynamic system. However, when comparing the two organic variations with the integrated system a significant higher yield and pruning weight as well as a significant lower sugar content was assessed
