Root Intrusion in Subsurface Drip Irrigation
In 2009 a sub-surface drip irrigation system utilising KISSS Flat geotextile covering was installed in a number of blocks at Accolade Wines’ Banrock Station vineyard near Kingston-on-Murray in South Australia. This system very quickly suffered major root intrusion, resulting in dripper blockages, resulting in poor application uniformity and patchy vine growth.
In response, a trial was established to document and investigate flow reductions in a subsurface drip irrigation system due to root intrusion.
Final Report: Riverland Vineyard Mulching Trial
Under the GWRDC Grassroots Program a demonstration trial to assess the potential value of under vine mulch applications in Riverland irrigated vineyards was commenced in July 2012 and was completed in June 2014. The trial was undertaken at Jubilee Park Vineyards at Yamba in SA, with the vineyard owners and Manager cooperating in undertaking the trial maintenance work. The Fruit Doctors organised soil and petiole analyses and provided fundamental observations.
Controlling Gazanias in the Riverland
Gazanias are an emerging and increasing problem in a number of areas across the country, including the Riverland. In this region, they are spreading along roadside verges and then into surrounding horticultural and farm land. No simple and truly effective control methodology has yet been devised.
