Research Project: Evaluating New Technology and Grapevine Genotypes to Improve Vineyard Water Use Sustainability

Location: Crops Pathology and Genetics Research

Project Number: 2032-21220-008-060-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2022
End Date: Aug 31, 2025

1. Evaluate technology to measure vineyard and vine evapotranspiration (ET) and stress estimated with ground-based and remotely sensed data. 2. Evaluate drought stress physiological responses of grapevine genotypes to facilitate screening efforts of germplasm material.

Utilize new technology for evaluating grapevine water use and stress. These sensors will be incorporated into ongoing experiments in commercial vineyards and orchards as well as a phenotyping platform established in greenhouses. facilities. Evaluate genotype resonses to drought stress using a novel load-cell based phenotyping platform.
