Soil preparation: Check soil conditions – type, depth and others Rip soil if necessary – to break up hardpan and mix different soil layers (best time is when soil is completely dry) Level land if necessary – one needs a small slope for surface irrigation Soil fumigation – for nematodes, weeds and some pathogens (not good for phylloxera)

Planning the vineyard: Vine and row spacing – can be determined by equipment size, trellis to be used, vineyard location (will vines be vigorous) Row direction – determined in part by trellis, product being produced (raisin, table or wine) Trellis system – determined by product being produced, ease of access to fruiting zone for manual cultural practices, harvest method (raisin/wine grapes), initial cost
