Irrigation is one of the main tools a grower can use to control vine vigor, yield and fruit quality. Learn how vine growth and fruit composition respond to vine water status. Study plant and soil-based monitoring technology that you can use to reach production objectives in your vineyards. Combining lecture and demonstrations in the field, this program shows vineyard owners and managers how to measure vineyard water status and what the numbers mean. Instructors present different methods for making irrigation decisions, including evapotranspiration and plant and soil-based measurements, and also discuss the pros and cons of each method and its application in irrigation scheduling to improve grape quality.
