Thank you Dustin Chabert, Jeremy Eubanks, Peter Plaehn, and Blake Leja for your input last week on Alsace's vineyard classification.
This week: Irrigation
What are some of the common irrigation techniques utilized in viticulture and what are their advantages/disadvantages?
If we're talking techniques, we should talk about the technique of scheduling in irrigation, too. Precise Timing and quantity decisions can alleviate some of the problems with root development mentioned, especially in more technologically advanced systems like drip and micro sprinkler.
