Organic fertilisers for delivery through irrigation : LUSENET : David's Organic Forum : One Thread

I figured Aussies would be the best people to pose this question to.

I am re-planting a vineyard on a terraced hillside in Tuscany, Italy. All my intelligence has been gathered to date from Australia (which I visit on business, and which publishes viticultuire books in English!)

I wish to ensure the crop, and the wine production processes are organic.

Any tips in general?

How do I source/make feed which can be delivered via drip irrigation?

I've got nothing to do with them, but they may have some info or leads closer to your home.

PS. Isn't Nuriootpa a great name!?
