Research Project: Economics of Sustainable Vinyard Water Management Strategies with Limited and Impaired Water Supplies

Location: Water Management Research

Project Number: 5302-13000-011-10
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 18, 2011
End Date: Aug 31, 2015

Objective:
Develop an intra-seasonal model of grape production that evaluates the economic impacts of different leaching and deficit irrigation strategies on grape production within a single season and across seasons. Analyze the economic impact of reduced water suplies and increased salinity on field and farm-level management decisions.

Approach:
The research will use the results of a series of field studies on cooperating farms, laboratory studies at UC Davis, greenhouse studies and sand tank studies at U.S. Salinity Laboratory in the model development.
