This vine health workshop will focus on two key areas: soil health and mealy bug and scale control.

  • Poor soil health can affect water infiltration and storage, and vine nutrition, having a significant impact on vine water relations and productivity.
  • Grapevine mealy bug and scale, the grapevine pests found in increasing numbers in Sunraysia vineyards last vintage, can spread virus, cause sooty mould and reduce vine performance.

The first half of the workshop will focus on the importance of building soil health to improve vineyard resilience in warm irrigated winegrowing regions. Practices to build soil carbon and improve soil structure, water infiltration rates and soil fertility will be discussed. The second half of this workshop will focus on best practice scale management.
