Join Drs. Lav Khot and Pete Jacoby as they look at ways to increase water use efficiency in vineyards.
During this talk, they will share methods and outcomes from an ongoing project funded by the WSDA Specialty Crop Block Grant.
Here are a few questions they set out to answer:
- Can we reduce water use without reducing yield potential and quality?
- What is the efficacy of different SSMI treatments compared to continuous surface irrigation applied at 100% evapotranspiration demand?
- How can remote sensing from small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) help us to better understand canopy vigor?
