The Technology Adoption and Outreach Group will be presenting a webinar the second Tuesday of each month at 1:00PM (Eastern Time – US and Canada)
Format: sign on and open discussion. presentation. 15 minute Q&A.
Webinar 3: Does your photosynthetic engine need a tune-up? Estimating canopy size with NDVI (August 14, 2018)
An efficient grapevine canopy maximizes photosynthetic capacity while minimizing internal shading. Efficient photosynthesis drives fruit production and quality. This webinar will cover the basics of canopy architecture and how sensors collect NDVI data (don’t worry, we will break that down too!) that can be used to map canopy size in vineyards.
Webinar 2 Looking Deeper; a subsurface vineyard exploration
Soil is the growing medium for grapevines, playing a key role in nutrient and water availability and cycling. Cultural practices like irrigation, fertilization, liming and cover cropping must be adapted to a specific soil environment. We will discuss how inherent variability in soil properties can be measured spatially using off-the-shelf…
Webinar1 A Hitchhiker's Guide to Precision Viticulture
This webinar will provide background and scope for the rest of the webinar series as well as straight-talk on how applying Precision viticulture (PV) can take the guess work out of vineyard management and how a short-term investment in PV can increase profitability, efficiency, and sustainability.
