Viticulture Session: Accurate yield estimates are critical for both grape suppliers and purchasers. In this session we will review traditional crop estimation techniques, and examine how estimates may be improved using phenology models to monitor fruit development. Recent research on improved yield forecasting techniques developed in Australia will also be presented.
