WHY THIS SURVEY?

SOIL4WINE is a Life project aimed at improving soil management in the viticulture sector and at defining tools and methodologies to support soil’s functions and ecosystem services.

The actions proposed will tailor land use management in order to achieve the soil ecosystems valorisation and will have an additional benefit in describing and supporting terrestrial biodiversity. Project results can also give information useful to define future policy decisions.

The objective of this survey is to understand the state of health of the soil in the vineyard ecosystem, through the perception and knowledge of those working in the industry. The survey will be conducted in all the winegrowing countries in Europe.

Questions will be asked concerning the wine region where you are working.

You can respond to the survey completely anonymously, or decide to join the project community, leaving your data in the final part of the questionnaire. You will be periodically informed of the project results and will receive a three-month subscription to the INFOWINE technical-scientific journal.
The data collected in the survey will be processed in anonymous form and used only for scientific purposes.
