Observations of Use

The use of Lithovit in viticulture in 2007 showed positive effects on plant health and a reduced susceptibility to disease. Depending on the vineyard concerned and the facilities available for analysis, the harvest produced a larger mass of grapes through larger individual berries, or a higher sugar content of the must.
