Viticulture

  • Aid in seasonal labour forecasting based on potential shifts in fruiting, harvesting and pruning schedules with drier, wetter, warmer and cooler seasonal conditions.
  • Seasonal forecasts can be used to interpret potential shifts in grapevine growth stages, phenological events, which in turn affect the formation and ratio of grape berry components, such as sugar, and prophenols, that give the colour, aroma and flavour attributes to the vintage relating to a wine style.
  • Irrigation requirements can be optimised in advance based on seasonal forecasts of wet and or dry and hot or cooler conditions and also with consideration of potential limitations of water supply from regional water schemes.
  • Seasonal rainfall and temperature outlooks can be factored into planning for fertilizer applications, pruning and pest and parasite management and treatments and potential harvest season conditions.
