Orchard process provides cool solution to heat stressed vines

Evaporative cooling systems are being used in South Australian vineyards as part of a project to protect grapes during heat waves ahead of harvest. The project is using under-canopy sprinklers in the Riverland and Coonawarra wine regions to cool vineyards at night at the height of the Australian summer. Mike McCarthy, principal scientist with the South Australian Research Development Institute is leading the project.
