Research Project: IMPROVING FRUIT AND FRUIT PRODUCTS QUALITY IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Location: Horticultural Crops Research

Project Number: 5358-21000-041-12
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 19, 2008
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
Identify and evaluate vineyard practices within the Pacific Northwest that produce high quality fruit and fruit products.

Approach:
Both parties will examine vine characteristics and major chemical components responsible for any differences, or similarities, between differing vineyard practices. We will use simple spectrophotometric methods in addition to more complex analytical methods (HPLC), to better understand qualitative and quantitative effects on grape phytonutrients.
