New digital technologies for managing winegrape production and quality

This project investigates the digital technologies that will assist growers to reduce losses associated with disease, stress and yield, three key areas where early detection and management can make a significant difference to the profitability for Australia’s grapegrowers. Yield loss through disease or weather events and inaccurate grape forecasting affects the Australian wine sector each year, and advanced technologies are potentially a tool for Australian grapegrowers to help plan for these risks. Through the development of processes and linking to better early detection systems, this project aims to help grapegrowers make better informed decisions earlier.
