New digital technologies for managing winegrape production and quality

This project will develop and field test a shortlist of digital technologies for grapegrowers that provide more accurate and faster measurements of yield, canopy structure, early detection of disease, and crop condition and composition. A recent study estimated that these benefits could potentially deliver a 25% improvement in the gross value of Australian agriculture.

Vine nutrition

The nutritional health of winegrape vines is usually measured through testing the plant petiole, the stalk that attaches a leaf to the plant stem, but results can take time to generate and may not be highly accurate. This project will develop a smartphone app to capture and analyse images of vine leaves, to rapidly assess nutritional status.
