Canopy management to improve grape yield and wine quality - principles and practices

, : Canopy management to improve grape yield and wine quality - principles and practices. South African Journal of Enology and Viticulture 11(1): 3-17

This review and discussion paper was also presented at the 13th congress of the South African Society for Enology and Viticulture, Cape Town, 2 Nov. 1989. It presents principles of canopy management together with a series of quantitative indices for diagnosing problems. Guidelines are given for canopy surface area; spacing between canopies; within-canopy shade; balance between fruit and shoot growth; and uniformity of location of fruiting/renewal zones, shoot tips and cane bases.
