viticultural operations


Explanation:
Note that you need to translate the full term, "operaciones en verde." Has to do with tending live vines (hence the "en verde").

Here are some explanations:

These systems involve mechanization of viticultural operations such
as shoot thinning, canopy management, fruit thinning, leaf removal, summer pruning, harvesting and dormant pruning for established vineyards.

field operations / field activities


Explanation:
That is, activities or operations that are performed outdoors ("in the field" is the general English term characterizing any work done on-site, as it were, not just in agricultural fields _per se_), on the growing vines, as opposed to procedures that take place indoors, after the grapes have been harvested, or under laboratory conditions, etc.
