Sustainable Management of Soil, Water & Crop Quality

CGCN Resources

The goal to reduce the environmental footprint of grape production is paramount to the Canadian wine industry. Conservation of resources such as water and energy and preservation of natural components of vineyard ecosystems, including soil and vegetation, can reduce requirements for pesticides and energy and improve crop quality. The impact of responsible management on fruit and wine quality is explored in Activities 8, 9 & 10 through soil fertility, reducing pest pressures and erosion, canopy management and mitigating excess plant vigor.
