Vine Characteristics for Resiliency
Grapegrowing Breakout Session
When considering the development of a vineyard and the appropriate choice of cultivar, grapegrowers must consider future climate changes, limited access to water and other natural resources, potential for novel and/or newly resistant diseases and pests, and challenges with labor availability and operational constraints. What grapevine traits may prove useful in mitigating these issues and what research is showing regarding our current popular cultivars and their resilience concerning future issues.
