Manuring Vineyard

Does barnyard manure have any injurious effect on the vines if applied

on my vineyard? One of my neighbors claims barnyard manure burned his

vines so he got no crop wherever he spread the manure, and nothing would

now induce him to use it again.

Barnyard manure can be safely used in a vineyard at the beginning of the

rainy season, working it in with the plowing, but not using too much.

Wine grapes are sometimes injuriously affected in flavor by the use of

such fertilizer, but the growth of the vine itself can be stimulated by

the rational use of it. Your neighbor apparently either used too much or

made the application at the beginning of the dry season or made some

other mistake.
