Three years' results of winter evaporative cooling on grapevines: effects on bud opening and crop characterstics



Three years' results of winter evaporative cooling on grapevines: effects on bud opening and crop characterstics



Advances in Horticultural Science 1(1): 20-26



Sangiovese, Malvasia and Trebbiano vines growing in a sandy soil on the Pisa plain, were overhead-sprinkled for different periods in late winter and spring for 3 years, to delay bud development (for frost avoidance) by evaporative cooling. The treatment was applied when the temperature was above 8 degrees C, beginning about 30 days before bud opening in the first year, 63 days before in the second year, and 30 to 40 days before in the third year.
