Description:  Join Principal Investigator Dr. Terry Bates of Cornell University for a demo as he puts into action the variable rate techniques and shoot thinning technology he and his team have developed.  Custom equipment provided by VMech.  Dr. Bates will compose a map of vineyard vigor (NDVI) and calibrate the map against manual shoot counts, and generate a predicted spatial shoot count map and use that data to complete a prescription map that the mechanized shoot thinner will follow automatically.

Explore the Efficient Vineyard Manual for guidance on variable rate management in your own vineyard.  The Efficient Vineyard USDA SCRI project was partially funded by NGRAefficientvineyard.com
