Managing grapevines during heatwaves

The GWRDC have released a factsheet complied by SARDI researchers Dr Peter Hayman, Dr Michael McCarthy, Dr Dane Thomas in collaboration with AWRI viticulturist Dr Mardi Longbottom.

This resource provides a meteorological explanation of heatwaves and the damage that can be caused to grapevines at critical growth stages. Most importantly it provides management strategies to protect grapevines and ‘Action guidelines for extreme heat events’ to guide growers before, during and after a bout of hot weather.
