Water is essential to life…and that applies to your grapevines! Learn how and when to most efficiently apply water to your vines. This session will discuss the unique physiology of grapevines that allows them to thrive here in New Mexico. Different methods of irrigation will be presented with emphasis on drip irrigation. The effects of water quality on grapevines and plants in general will be discussed. You will learn how to assess your vines water status, in other words, how ‘thirsty’ your vines are at any given time during the year.

This workshop is part of the Heritage Farm Home Vineyard Workshops taught by Gill Giese, PhD, New Mexico State University Extension viticulture specialist. All workshops are included with regular admission to the Botanic Garden. Workshops occur on the second Saturday of each month.

Pre-registration is required. Contact Pamela Dupzyk at 505-848-7162.
