Poor yields prompt Marlborough viticulture field day

24th May 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

A soil health field day is to be hosted on 2 June in Marlborough to provide a forum for grape producers and those involved in the viticulture industry to look at how to get back up to speed after a poor-yielding 2021 harvest.

Growers are looking at how they can bring their yields back to standards through invigorating soil health.

The industry estimated that harvest volumes were down between 30%-50% on the previous year as a result of late frosts combined with uneven weather patterns through spring and summer.
