Project title
Determining optimum irrigation schedules for drip irrigated vineyards in the Breede River valley and the Coastal region

Project leader
Myburgh, P A

Project description
Until now most of the irrigation research on wine grape was performed in microsprinkler irrigated vineyards. Hence, the knowledge concerning scheduling low or high frequency drip irrigation in vineyards, and in particular the effects of deficit irrigation, to obtain optimum wine quality is limited. The purpose of the project is to expand this knowledge.
