One million vineyard acres across all sectors of the U.S. grape industry have large spatial variations in soil, vine growth, and fruit yield. Funded through the USDA-NIFA-Specialty Crop Research Initiative, the Efficient Vineyard project is a national effort to advance the use of precision viticulture in wine, juice, and table grape production. The disciplines of engineering, precision agriculture, viticulture, and economics come together to measure vineyard soil, canopy, and crop characteristics, model spatial data for viticulture information, and manage vineyard crop load through variable-rate machine applications. Join Dr. Terry Bates as he discusses how the Efficient Vineyard Project and the MyEfficientVineyard tool can help grape producers improve their bottom line with high quality grape production.
