The soil is loosened before plowing a new vineyard by plowing deep, usually depending on the depth soil type at least 30 to 80, in rare cases up to 120 centimeters (the Dutch-French trench means deep channel or drainage ditch). The vineyard soils, some of which have been used for a thousand years, were previously rigged by hand every 30 to 80 years. Today, this is done mechanically every 20 to 40 years, unless it is not completely dispensed with. This will loosen the soil, remove densified layers and enrich the sub-floor with missing ones nutrients achieved, which is particularly important when planting the young vines. Root residues must be removed completely in order to decay and spread later bacteria to prevent. This work is carried out in late autumn until the onset of winter. The resulting soil is called Rigosol. See also under fertilization and clear, as well as a complete list of all activities under Weingarten Care,
