‘Frost risk audit’: avoiding costly crop losses

 In Frost protection, Operational management, Vineyard establishment

The anticipation of the 2022 vintage is tempered by the threat of spring frosts – potentially devastating yields and finances. Vineyards need tailored solutions as there is no ‘one size fits all’.

The Vinescapes ‘Frost risk audit’ will provide:

  • A site risk assessment by Dr Alistair Nesbitt, or one of the experienced Vinescapes team members, and analysis of past damage patterns
  • A detailed frost event metrics and data detailing historical frost events and associated temperatures in the vineyard locality, together with cold air flow and accumulation risk zones mapping for clients
  • A tailored frost risk audit report detailing the site-specific recommendations to mitigate future frost events, including equipment recommendations, as required.

Please email info@vinescapes.com or call Vinescapes on +44 (0) 1306 733960 or +44 (0) 7967 602670 to book an audit or discuss further.
