Grapes are now being produced in places where it had not previously been considered possible, largely due to the advances made in understanding how the vine works, as well as improvements in technology and management skills. The production of grapes continues to grow and methods of grape production and how the fruit is utilized are changing rapidly. This book covers a broad range of topics from vineyard establishment and management to postharvest handling and improvements in pest control.
Advanced plant science students and those who are producing grapes for the first time, as well as enthusiasts of the vine and its products.
