Interactive Effects of Deficit Irrigation and Crop Load on Cabernet Sauvignon in an Arid Climate
Regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) and crop-load adjustment are regarded as important viticultural practices for premium-quality wine production, although little is known about their interactive… Expand
Cold-Hardiness Evaluation of Grapevine Buds and Cane Tissues
A system for differential thermal analysis (DTA) was constructed to assess cold hardiness of grapevine buds and cane tissues. This updated system incorporated a sample chamber of our own design with… Expand
Cluster Thinning Effects on Three Deficit-Irrigated Vitis vinifera Cultivars
Crop load adjustment is widely accepted as an important vineyard management tool for premium-quality wine production. However, little information is available on its effectiveness under warm, dry… Expand
Rootstock Effects on Deficit-Irrigated Winegrapes in a Dry Climate: Vigor, Yield Formation, and Fruit Ripening
A rootstock field trial was conducted in the Yakima Valley, southeastern Washington, with three Vitis vinifera cultivars (Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay). Vines were grown on their own roots or… Expand

Cold injury is a key environmental challenge in many grape-producing regions, especially those at high latitudes. Although grapevines acclimate to cold temperatures in fall and deacclimate when warm… Expand
Tanzanian strain of bean common mosaic virus
Scanning electron microscopy of the germination, growth and infection of Ustilago maydis on maize.
Spring temperatures alter reproductive development in grapevines
Background and Aims: Climate variation contributes to fluctuations in reproductive output, and spring temperature is thought to influence flower production in grapevines. For 3 years, we studied the… Expand
