Abstract

A trial in which Concord grapes were monitored to examine the effects of pruning, irrigation/drought, and the interactions of fine root production is discussed. From the study it was found that irrigation is not necessary for normally-pruned grapevines if a conservative soil management is used. With minimal pruning, however, irrigation may be of value, depending on the soil/cover crop management.
