My research program focuses on developmental and environmental factors and vineyard management practices as they influence crop physiology of wine and juice grapes. As outlined below, my lab investigates scion-rootstock interactions, grape development and water relations during fruit ripening, irrigation and crop load management, yield formation, and cold hardiness.

Pre-harvest irrigation
Irrigation during the grapes’ ripening phase is prohibited by law in many European countries and is often discouraged by wineries even in the new world for fear the extra water might be taken up by the grapes and dilute their quality. Surprisingly, there is little scientific evidence that late-season water uptake by the roots is detrimental to fruit quality. We are using innovative techniques to investigate how water moves into and out of grape berries and whether such water movement leads to changes in berry size and solute concentration. This work is done in collaboration with the WSU grape physiologist Dr. Bhaskar Bondada and is funded by the USDA Northwest Center for Small Fruits Research.

Berry shrivel
A relatively new phenomenon is plaguing grape growers up and down western North America from California to British Columbia. Grape berries, especially of the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon blanc, sometimes appear to stop ripening shortly after veraison and remain sour with low sugar, color and flavor but high astringency. In contrast to the better known bunch-stem necrosis, the rachis tissues remain green until well after the berries have begun to shrivel. The problem is also known in Europe, although often under the name “Zweigelt disease”, because it was first reported on this variety. In collaboration with the WSU grape physiologistDr. Bhaskar Bondada we are trying to uncover the causes for this syndrome, so that we may develop potential remedies. This research is funded by the Washington wine tax.

Planting density
Concord juice producers face stiff competition nationally and internationally, which results in very small profit margins for the growers. We are testing the establishment and performance of Concord grapes planted at various distances both within and between vineyard rows with the aim to consistently maximize crop production while maintaining desirable fruit quality. This project is funded by the juice processors through the Washington State Concord Grape Research Council.

Cold hardiness
Washington’s occasional cold winters make wind machines or heating devices in vineyards a necessary but costly investment. In extreme cases, not running a wind machine during a cold episode can result in vines being killed to the ground, while running one unnecessarily is a waste of time and money. We test the changes in cold hardiness of buds and cane tissues of a range of grapevine varieties throughout each winter season.  The information on critical temperatures is updated weekly, so that growers can use it to determine when frost protection measures should be initiated. Funding for this service activity comes from Washington’s grape growers, winemakers and juice processors through the Washington State Grape and Wine Research Program and the Washington State Concord Grape Research Council.
