Assessing the variability of soil surface characteristics in row-cropped fields : The case of Mediterranean vineyards in Southern France


The aim of this paper is to analyse the spatial heterogeneity of soil surface characteristics (SSC) in the case of a vineyard (Hérault province, Southern France) in order to propose an adequate sampling strategy. The spatial heterogeneity of SSC was analysed at intra-transect and inter-transect levels using measurements of structural crust, sedimentary crust, grass and organic litter. The role of site topography on spatial patterning of SSC atttributes across the plot and the need to stratify the plot into areas with homogeneous slope were also demonstrated
