Crop Management

Crop management techniques are implemented to reduce the risk of disease, optimise leaf and fruit-zone light exposure, improve air circulation, and optimising grape quality and yield. Techniques include: winter pruning, shoot thinning, shoot positioning, leaf thinning, cluster thinning, green harvesting and hedging. These techniques also help control vine vigour and improve the efficacy of crop protection.
Good management in this area supports economic sustainability through optimised grape quality and quantity.
