Sites viticoles

For more than a century, copper has been used in different forms in the composition of fungicides used in viticulture. Thought not  moving  once in the soil, copper is still spreading in the environment with water run-off and soil erosion.

Over the past few years, areas used for wine production: Gros-Plant and Muscadet are being permanently grubbed-up, which raises the question of the future of those soils enriched in copper.

 POLLUSOLS is focusing on two parcels located in Le Loroux-Bottereaux in the framework of a first collaboration with the TERRENA group. Solutions of copper pollution management may be experimented (currently under discussion).
