About the event

Why Crop Estimation Matters

Accurately  estimating your crop yield early in the season is a critical skill for  any grape grower. A good estimate allows you to:

  • Plan for Harvest: Knowing your expected yield helps you prepare labor, equipment,  and processing facilities for a smooth harvest.
  • Optimize Fruit Quality: Early insights into crop size allow you to adjust management  practices to optimize fruit quality and sugar levels.
  • Make Informed Decisions: Accurate yield estimates support informed decisions about  fruit sales, pricing strategies, and winery production plans.

What to Expect

This  First Friday meeting will delve into the world of crop estimation. The  event kicks off with a presentation on the latest research in crop  estimation methods. Following the presentation, there will  be a roundtable discussion where you can:

  • Learn from fellow growers: Share experiences and best practices for crop estimation  in your vineyards.
  • Ask the experts: Get your crop estimation questions answered by industry professionals.
  • Explore new techniques: Discover innovative methods for more accurate crop predictions.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and connect with fellow grape growers!
