February 3rd – Windsor, CA — Enartis USA, a leading supplier to the wine industry, is pleased to partner with The Vintage Report, a global thought leadership symposium connecting winegrowers with the highest quality analytical insights of growing conditions, to host a webinar titled “A Vintage Defined by Heat Waves: Commercial Trials to Evaluate a Tool to Improve Vineyard Resiliency” held Wednesday, February 10 at 10am PST.
It is often stated that vineyards are the “canary in the coal mine” for the rest of global agriculture. Some impacts are already being felt by grape growers with an overall reduction in vineyard resilience attributed to extreme weather conditions such as drought and excessively high temperatures. The 2020 vintage showed us how vine resilience was pushed to its extreme with more and more heat wave episodes in winegrowing regions across the globe.
During this presentation, JT Jaeger will discuss a case study where we explore heat/water stress and how a soil microbial application has shown to improve vine resiliency through these heat events. We investigate this using infrared thermography, plant water status, and analysis of grape quality and yields. Using examples from around the world, the Vintage Report will demonstrate extreme heat challenges on a global scale. In doing this, Vintage Report co-founder Thibaut Scholasch PhD will discuss his analysis on the rise of extreme heat events and what this means in terms of plant physiology.
While we can measure extreme heat, in order to see real impact there is a direct need to change practices in the field. Join us for this event dedicated to applied research and pragmatic technologies and see how solutions to extreme heat can be implemented this season.
