A very delicate and risky business

Growing grapes in general, and wine grapes in particular, is a very delicate and risky business. In addition to the general need of increasing yield and reducing production costs, this crop has an additional factor that can determine the yield results of the season. During just a few weeks towards the end of the season, fruit cracking and post-harvest rot are two major issues. Several factors such as morning relative humidity, temperatures, and soil water availability affect cracking. SupPlant has developed pertinent irrigation management routines in order to avoid fruit cracking, ensuring a healthy harvest and lasting on-the-shelf lifetime. Our customers have been able to optimize their irrigation regimes and their investment in their vines through the following effects:

  • Significantly reduce the percentage of cracked fruit – only 10% of cracked fruit in comparison to 30% in neighboring plots not monitored by SupPlant.
  • Precisely monitor phenological stages for accurate management applications and other farming activities.
  • Manage vineyard stress levels through precise irrigation management, ensuring you reach each variety’s potential.
