Wine Australia project using digital technology to transform vineyard management

January 15, 2020

A digital platform called VitiVisor will collect information direct from the vineyard via cameras and sensors and analyse the large amounts of data produced to assess vineyard performance and, for the first time, offer coordinated advice on management practices such as irrigation, pruning, fertiliser, fungicide and pesticide applications. Led by the University of Adelaide, the project is a collaboration between the University, Riverland Wine and Wine Australia, with support from UniSA and Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA)
