Research Project: Development of a User-Friendly and Self-Calibrated and Surface Renewal System to Measure Vineyard-Scale and Vine Water Use

Location: Crops Pathology and Genetics Research

Project Number: 2032-21220-005-03
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Jan 01, 2010
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
Develop an inexpensive method for real-time, remotely-accessible measurement of vineyard-scale evapotranspiration and vine water use.

Approach:
A field based surface renewal system will be used to estimate vine and whole vineyard water use. The work will involve developing a self-calibrated, inexpensive, user-friendly surface renewal system for use in vineyards.
