Calculating the amount of water and Nitrogen applied to a vineyard are important for tracking inputs and improving efficiency. This workshop will include how to interpret soil and water analysis reports and how to calculate total water applied from irrigation, frost protection, and rainfall plus total nitrogen applied from fertilizer, compost, and water. Paul Crout of Vineyard Professional Services will guide participants through the process of calculating total water used and total Nitrogen applied. These are the same calculations used in SIP Certified Standard Chapter 11 Year End Water and Nitrogen Use Reports which are due December 15, 2017.

Bring the following information with you and you can complete the calculations in the meeting:

Fertilizer labels and water analyses can be hard to interpret, so feel free to bring these as well.
