The Regional Program in SA North aims to promote concepts, tools and technology to growers and wineries so they can improve soil and vine health, achieve consistent yields, improve grape and wine quality, and enhance their adaptive capacity to the changing climate. The region is also committed to, where possible, promoting best management practices that will improve operational efficiency and reduce costs of production, ensuring profitability and viability of grape growing in SA North into the future. The SA North Regional Program Annual Operating plan focuses on:
- efficient and appropriate use of water to achieve consistency of wine grape quality
- eutypa management and addressing the barriers to adoption
- new technology for viticultural management (education and adoption), and
- understanding vineyard ecology to improve pest and disease management.
