First five sentences: Traditional irrigation of winegrapes in the Lodi area has its roots in the table grape and bulk industry. The goal was to maintain good vine water relations during the season until harvest. During this time, when flood and furrow irrigation was the norm, precise control of water deficits was difficult. As the area moved from table grapes the practices were carried over to premium winegrapes.
