Grape and Wine Research
The CSIRO Horticultural Crop Improvement Program is working to enhance the production, processing and marketing chain of the Australian grape and wine industry by providing better genetic material through breeding and advanced plant management techniques.
CSIRO grape and wine researchers are targeting:
- wine quality characteristics, such as berry colour and flavour
- production characteristics, such as disease control, flowering and fruit set
- sustainability issues, such as water and nutrient use.
