This course is designed to delve in-depth into the scientific literature that should drive decision making in vineyard production systems. We will critically evaluate studies from around the world and discuss their applicability to winegrape production systems in a range of climates.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to describe the major agricultural challenges facing wine-grape production today.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to describe to what level science has informed common wine-grape production practices.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to examine how the academic literature can be applied to wine-grape production.

Outcome 4: Students will be able to assess the potential contribution of specific scientific studies to the wine-grape industry.

Outcome 5: Students will be able to identify specific challenges in wine-grape production that need to be addressed by scientific experimentation.
