Local field research is conducted by Cooperative Extension Advisors, in cooperation with University of California Extension Specialists, Experiment Station personnel and growers. Research efforts target rootstock and varietal selections that are best adapted to local growing conditions and markets. Irrigation, fertilization, and soil management research helps growers use natural resources effectively. Innovations in cultural practices, canopy management techniques, and pest control help local growers produce premium quality wine and table grapes with environmentally sensitive methods.
