Vineyard Technology: Drip Irrigation

Randy Krag from Beckstoffer Vineyards explains how drip irrigation “provides a precise and uniform amount of water, exactly the amount of water that we think the vine needs in a particular period.” He says that vineyard owners used to water vines “a whole lot more than we do now.” However, he says, “it turns out vines don’t need anywhere near as much water as we were giving them, say, thirty years ago… Drip irrigation allows us to reduce the amount of water that we use and to give only as much water as we think is necessary for high-quality fruit.”
