Grapegrowing Technical Exhibits Tours
Labor availability is a huge concern for our industry. Innovative growers and manufacturers are developing equipment and cultural practices to increase efficiency while maintaining or improving yield and fruit/wine composition. An important component of these efforts is to manage as many operations as possible in mature vineyards using equipment to reduce the number of “touches” required by labor. This exhibit hall tour will visit some of these innovators and inspire you to become creative with mechanization and vineyard cultural practices to maximize your labor availability.
