The period to the vineyard restructuring is opened and lots of farmers have decided to update their vineyard or to change their varieties. We don't own vineyards, therefore, this issue is not really well-known for us. This time, there are 210 millions of euros for these aids (2014-2018), which could achieve 6,000€/ha... if you are interested in this issue you can visit masquemaquina.com blog, where you can find much more related information.
One of the financed tasks is the vine removal when the objective is renewing them with a trellis arbor system. We were pleased to spend one morning with Avelino Bonilla who was working with his New Holland TM190 taking out vines.The tool he used to remove them was a enormous plough and the truth is that it worked absolutely well, since the tractor doesn't require to do an excessive effort and the result was excellent (Avelino told us that previously he used another tool which needed the P.T.O. and the tractor worked much more than nowadays).
