TITLE: Viticulture in a warm grape growing region 

SPEAKER: prof. Kobus Hunter, ARC-Infruitec, Stellenbosch, South Africa

ABSTRACT: Studies on climate change at the regional scale of the South Western Cape, the traditional wine grape-growing area of South Africa, show that climate change has already affected the wine industry. Research shows significant trends in rainfall and air temperature. Studies on future expected climate conditions for South Africa show that temperatures can be expected to rise everywhere in the South Western Cape, with the smallest increases in areas adjoining the coast.The effect of vineyard's row orientation on vine physiological response in a warm grape growing region will be presented.
