Information about agrochemicals is published annually by the AWRI in a booklet titled Agrochemicals registered for use in Australian viticulture, commonly known as the ‘Dog book’. The booklet is distributed free to all wineries that pay the wine research levy, and as an insert in the July edition of Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker. If you are a member of the Australian wine industry and would like to receive a hard copy of the 2023/24 ‘Dog book’ by mail, please complete the ‘Dog book’ sign-up form.
You can also download a copy of the revised version of “Grapevine growth stages – The modified E-L system” Viticulture 1 – Resources. 2nd edition 2004. Eds. Dry, P. and Coombe, B. (Winetitles) as a PDF file (234kb).
The AWRI’s agrochemicals project is supported by Wine Australia, with levies from Australia’s grapegrowers and winemakers and matching funds from the Australian Government.
