Vineyard Site Selection in Kentucky Based on Climate and Soil Properties

 UK Authors: Kaan Kurtural, Patsy Wilson
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: farm crops, fruits and nuts, soil and land

Commercial wine grapes have recently emerged as an alternative crop in Kentucky after laws evolved encouraging private entrepreneurs to invest in vineyards and small farm wineries many decades after prohibition shut down the industry. Grapes grown in Kentucky are exposed to biotic and abiotic stresses that reduce crop yields and quality or kill grapevines. Damaging winter temperatures, spring frosts, and higher than optimal growing temperatures occur regularly. Despite these challenges, grape growing is a successful enterprise in many areas of the state.

HO-88
Viticultural Regions and Suggested Cultivars in Kentucky
9/14/2007 (new)

 UK Authors: Kaan Kurtural, Patsy Wilson
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: farm crops, fruits and nuts

Grapes grown in Kentucky are subject to environmental stresses that reduce crop yield and quality, and injure and kill grapevines. Damaging critical winter temperatures, late spring frosts, short growing seasons, and extreme summer temperatures all occur with regularity in regions of Kentucky. However, despite the challenging climate, certain species and cultivars of grapes are grown commercially in Kentucky. The aim of this bulletin is to describe the macroclimatic features affecting grape production that should be evaluated in the site selection process and to shorten the trial and error process of finding the best cultivar and climate match.

HO-86
Crop Estimation in Vineyards
8/15/2007 (new)

 UK Authors: Kaan Kurtural, Brandon O'Daniel
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: farm crops, fruits and nuts

Viticulture is becoming a successful alternative cropping system in Kentucky due to the increased demand for locally grown grapes and their profitability. However, the sustainability of the industry is hindered by insufficient experience on estimating crop size of hybrid and vinifera cultivars in a region that is subject to frequent damaging winter and spring temperatures.
