Vineyard Mechanization Webinar

June 11, 2019 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm PDT


Can Mechanizing Vineyard Tasks Make you Money?

Pacific Northwest wine grape growers are invited to this free webinar led by Dr. Clark Seavert, Oregon State University agricultural economist.

Dr. Seavert will share his evaluation of the economic potential of mechanizing vineyard tasks in the Pacific Northwest, research that was funded directly by Washington State Wine and Oregon’s Erath Family Foundation.

He’ll discuss the upfront investment costs, economic benefits of reducing or eliminating hand labor and payback periods of mechanization. Growers learn about the results and underlying assumptions of mechanizing the tasks of pruning, shoot thinning/desuckering, leaf pulling and harvest as well as the free online decision tool AgBiz Logic and how to modify the data to make it relevant for their operation size.
