Grapes are being produced in many places where it was not considered possible before, largely due to advances in understanding how the vine works, as well as improvements in technology and management skills. The production of grapes continues to grow while methods of grape production and how the fruit is utilized are changing rapidly. Covering a broad range of topics from vineyard establishment and management to postharvest handling and improvements in pest control, this book, with its coverage of both theory and science, targets advanced plant science students and those who are producing grapes for the first time, as well as enthusiasts of the vine and its products. Part of the Crop Production Science in Horticulture Series from CABI.
