Attendees will hear firsthand from industry experts about measuring and monitoring vine water stress and how various tools and technologies are used to monitor stress. Our program will begin with an overview of the mechanisms of vine water and salt stress and how rootstock breeding can help, with Dr. Kevin Fort (Department of Viticulture & Enology, UC Davis). Senior Research Scientist Dr. Luis Sanchez (E&J Gallo Winery) will then discuss results from a precision irrigation field trial designed to improve vineyard uniformity and reduce excess water use. University of California Cooperative Extension Viticulture & Plant Science Advisor Glenn McGourty (Mendocino & Lake Counties) will continue with a presentation on dry farming practices for low rainfall conditions, followed by an industry roundtable on local dry farming strategies.
Our tailgate will then include an expert panel discussion including demonstration of vine water stress measurement and practical application including:
