WA growers continue extreme heat and wind trial

A sunscreen and shade trial is continuing to deliver results for Western Australian grapegrowers. The project, being conducted as part of the Western Australia Regional Program funded by Wine Australia, started in 2014 to help growers find ways to manage the effect of extreme heat events on fruit quality – in particular, looking at the use of shadecloth and two commercially available sunscreen products.
