Irrigation Demonstration Project

 

Project Summary

This project aims to increase water use efficiency in vineyards in the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin. Three vineyard demonstration sites have been selected, in which growers will be assisted in adopting new irrigation management practices through the use of plant, soil, and weather data collection. The content from the demonstration sites will be extended to a broader grower audience through tailgate meetings, newsletters, email lists, website(s), social media, fact sheets, presentations, and trade publications.
