Achieve Optimal Shape, Look and Taste in Table Grapes with Precision Irrigation

In the table grape market, grapes must be beautiful and perfectly shaped as well as feature the right symmetry and maturation. Precision irrigation gives you control of both water and fertiliser application, so you can produce high quality grapes in a consistent cluster every time.

The Solution for Table Grapes

Why Choose Precision Irrigation for Your Table Grapes?

  • Reduce costs by 30% 
    Precision irrigation delivers a controlled amount of water and nutrients straight to the root zone of each plant, wasting nothing. This practice can save you up to 30% in water and fertiliser costs alone. In addition, precise water delivery ensures minimal weed growth, reducing herbicide application costs.
  • Promote uniformity 
    Even if the vineyard is on a slope or in an odd shape, pressure-compensating drippers ensure uniform water delivery with zero flow variation. This consistency ensures uniform fruit development and positions you to harvest only once, and market a uniform yield.
  • Customise by growth stage 
    Precision irrigation allows flexibility; you can create an irrigation and nutrition regime that’s tailored to each stage of cluster development, empowering you to control all quality parameters.
  • Suitable for all climates 
    Many grape-growing regions are so dry that irrigation is vital for the vines to thrive. Other areas need irrigation to supplement the nutrient drainage caused by massive rainfall. No matter what the weather conditions, precision irrigation assures the right amount of both water and nutrients directly to the plant root zone.
  • Protect your vineyards from frost 
    Spring frost often causes great damage to table grape yields, claiming as much as 60% of the crop in colder climates. Netafim’s frost protection solutions are indispensable and will ensure limited damage.

Table Grapes FAQs

  • Why should I choose drip irrigation over sprinklers for my table grapes?

    Drip irrigation provides optimal, uniform water application for optimal soil moisture and outstanding aeration, which is critical for producing marketable table grapes. As no water is wasted due to run-off or evaporation, drip saves 30% on water and energy costs when compared to other irrigation methods. Delivering nutrients directly to the root zone means that there is no weed growth between vine rows, and more importantly, moisture levels within the canopy remain low, reducing the risk of threatening foliar diseases.

  • Can drip irrigation systems be activated remotely?

    Yes. Advanced digital farming tools allow you to activate and manage both irrigation and Nutrigation™ from the palm of your hand, wherever you are. You can also use additional digital tools like soil moisture and plant sensors to optimise yields and resource use.
