Program
Session 1: Financials Drivers to Change

This Session will focus on what financial levers drive the adoption of management practices.

Session 2: Vineyard Floor Management

Vineyard floor management is one of the most critical aspects of maintaining good soil function for the production of wine in a changing climate. This session will highlight issues such as the impact of various weed management practices on crop production, and the effects of undervine cover crops on mycorrhiza. With herbicide access and efficacy reducing in different parts of the world, we will also explore the future of weed management and alternative methods of control for different weed situations.

Session 3: Additives, management and plant response

Soil related plant response is often attributed to additives in the soil. This session focuses on some of the management practices and additives used in these situations. The impacts of cover cropping on the carbon cycle, improving moisture retention and yield in warm inland regions with additives, as well as the uses for bio stimulants and biochar.
