Water Monitoring and Management
Grapegrowing Technical Exhibits Tours
Water plays a relevant role in winegrape production as it affects the yield and quality attributes of the fruit. The west coast of the United States is confronted with one of the worst drought period in many years. Developing water saving strategies is an objective of current research as well as a goal of most of grape growers. This tour will focus on the latest tools to efficiently apply water and monitor irrigation needs in the vineyard. You will see new technologies that will help you understand water impact in vine growth, fruit yield, and quality.
