Post Harvest Care of Grapevines: Irrigation and Nutrition

Thursday, May 5, 2016

The first objective of this factsheet is to describe the roles that carbohydrate and some of the main nutrient reserves play in the seasonal growth cycle of grapevines, and to outline the conditions under which the post-harvest recovery is most likely to be needed. The second objective is to discuss how irrigation and fertiliser inputs can be used most efficiently to promote carbohydrate and nutrient storage during the latter part of the season.
