The Victorian Department of Primary Industries in conjunction with the Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation are proud to announce the release of a DVD highlighting information presented at the Smoke Effect Technical Workshop which was held in Melbourne in July 2008.
The workshop brought together Australia's leading researchers who reported to industry and government agencies about past and current research into the smoke effect issues encountered by the wine industry and created discussion about the needs and priorities of future research.
Representatives from the Department of Sustainability and Environment also spoke at the conference, providing insight into the processes and importance behind their Prescribed Burning Programs. By improving the relationship between DSE and the wine sector, DSE management and staff will have a better understanding of the concerns facing growers and wineries and it provides the opportunity for important dialogue and planning to occur between the two identities.
An introductory video on Smoke Effect research is available and can be seen via the DPI Victoria website at www.dpi.vic.gov.au/horticulture
DPI Victoria would like to acknowledge the assistance given to this project by the GWRDC, Mark Krstic, King Valley Vignerons, Alpine Valley Vignerons, Yarra Valley Winegrowers Association, VWIA, Department of Sustainability and Environment and the speakers on the DVD.
