In the Mediterranean area, the use of cover crops in vineyards is still debated and the results of the few scientific experiments considering the influence of cover crop on grapevine are often conflicting. This work aims at providing useful indications on sustainable management for irrigated vineyards growing in a hot and dry region. A five year study was carried out in NW Sardinia, Italy, in a 8 year old vineyard cv. Carignano. To evaluate interactions between grapevine and cover crop as well as the economic impact of intercropping, soil tillage (T1) was compared with 4 inter-row treatments: natural covering (T2), complex commercial grass–legume mixture (T3), simple experimental grass–legume mixture (T4) and perennial grass Dactilys glomerata cv Currie (T5).
