Piketberg Demonstration Test Update

We did a final visit at the Piketberg test before harvesting :

Block A – Micro Irrigation, 320L per vine per week
Bunch Weight: 680g
60 Grapes: 224g
Average Individual Grape Weight: 3,73g

Block B – NOVAP Irrigation, 112L per vine per week
Bunch Weight: 895g
60 Grapes: 330g
Average Individual Grape Weight: 5,5g

This photo shows a typical comparison we found between NOVAP irrigation (left, large bunch) vs micro irrigation (right, small bunch).

 

More feedback on this and other installations to follow soon!
