Post Harvest Management – Growers Guide

Thursday, May 5, 2016

Behind the guidelines are a number of years of research in Riverina vineyards in which NWGIC scientists have worked in collaboration with commercial vineyard operators to understand how water supply, crop load, mineral nutrition, heat and disease management all influence grapevine performance. The common factor behind those influences is their impact on seasonal changes in carbohydrate and mineral nutrient reserves stored within the grapevine. This accounts for the strong emphasis we put on those reserves in preparing these guidelines.
