Recommendations for Sustainable Water and Soil Management to Minimize the Impacts of Salinity on Grape Yield and Quality
Project Number: 2036-61000-016-02
Start Date: Sep 01, 2010
End Date: Aug 31, 2015
1. Develop sustainable water management strategies for wine, table, raisin, and juice grape production using limited water supplies.
2. Develop sustainable water and soil management strategies for minimizing the impacts of drought and salinity on the root zone environment, grape yield and quality.
3. Quantify the effects of various water management strategies on fruit and product composition, and sensory qualities.
This research will be conducted using both laboratory and field research sites. The field research will conducted in the Central Valley and Paso Robles, CA. Laboratory studies will be conducted at the U.S. Salinity Laboratory in Riverside, CA. Documents NIFA Reimbursable.Log 42987.
