Growth, Yield and Fruit Quality of Grapevines under Organic and Biodynamic Management

*Döring, J., Frisch, M., Tittmann, S., Stoll, M. and Kauer, R. (2015). Growth, Yield and Fruit Quality of Grapevines under Organic and Biodynamic Management. PLoS One. 10(10), 1-28.

The growth, yield and fruit quality of grapevines (Riesling) from an organic and biodynamic production system was compared to the integrated management at Geisenheim university (Germany). “The growth and yield of the grapevines differed strongly among the different management systems, whereas fruit quality was not affected by the management system. The organic and the biodynamic treatments showed significantly lower growth and yield in comparison to the integrated treatment. The physiological performance was significantly lower in the organic and the biodynamic systems”. The vine growth was little affected by the application of biodynamic preparations…
