The objective of this cooperative research project is to conduct collaborative viticulture research of mutual benefit to ARS and the University of Idaho. The research conducted by the University of Idaho will be complementary to the wine grape research program established by ARS at the University of Idaho’s Parma Research and Extension Center. The broad objective of the ARS program is to investigate integrated, sustainable production practices for development of improved vineyard management strategies and improved end product quality or perceived market value.
Investigate critical management and production practices impacting wine grape quality components. Emphasis will be placed on water and canopy management, endproduct processing methods, as well as germplasm evaluation.
