Cornell is currently leading a USDA-NIFA-Specialty Crop Research Initiative project focused on bringing precision agriculture technology to the juice, wine, and table grape industries in the United States. Commercial vineyard blocks, in general, are managed uniformly because producers lack the tools and technology to measure and respond to variation in environmental resources, vine growth, and crop production. The “Efficient Vineyard” project brings together a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, precision agriculture specialists, viticulturists, economists, and extension specialists to measure vineyard soil, canopy, and crop characteristics, model spatial vineyard crop load, and manage vine production and fruit quality through mechanized variable-rate technologies.
