Project Objectives:
1. To determine the maximum amount of crop that can be produced per acre without detrimental effects on fruit composition and wine quality.
2. To compare productivity and fruit composition and wine quality of mechanically pruned grapevines to different levels of hand pruned grapevines.
3. To compare the effects of hand pruning and mechanical pruning on canopy microclimate, vegetative growth characteristics, and amount of bunch rot of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapevines.
